I have an Asus A8V-E Deluxe motherboard, which I bought during the summer of 2005. I'm interested in getting a new hard drive, but I already have 4 devices connected via IDE. I noticed that I have two free SATA connectors on my motherboard, but I'm not sure which standard it is compatible with. Newegg has hard drives listed under Serial ATA150, and SATA 3.0 G/s. The instruction manual and the specs for my motherboardaren't giving me much help. Does anyone know?

3.0ghz SATA drives will run on a SATA 1.5ghz connection, so this shouldn't be an issue. The worst that can happen is you'd have to jumper the drive for 1.5ghz operation, but most of the time it's not necessary.
