Sata 6GB/s is backwards compatibale....and to be honest its wasted on a HDD. It will improve its burst speeds, but HDDs real speed is barely saturating a SATA 1 bus!

You can have a 6 lane highway....but if only 2 lanes are being used, you aint going to get to your destination any faster on a 6 than on a three lane one. ;)

Unless you want 6GB/s hdd, I'd get whatever is cheapest. YMMV.
