Hi guys, was just wondering what kind of SATA I should buy for my comp.

I have a Abit KV8-MAX3 motherboard. I read in the manual that it supports SATA data transfer rates at 150 MB/s. (1.5G bps)

Does this mean that I cannot use the SATA 300 MB/s drives?
I was looking at some Western Digital drives and also browsing through some of the SATA II drives. Can I use these or do I need to buy a controller card?

I want to buy a quiet, fast drive, preferably cool aswell.

You can use a SATA 300mb/s drive, it'll just run at 150mb/s in your system.
