My System Specs

Exclamation New Issue with backplane

So I got a backplane for my hard drives and the motherboard doesn't really have enough SATA III connections on it. Is there some kind of PCI board that will work that will allow you to have SATA III through it? Is it just as effective? Looking at the motherboard there are 2 SATA III connections and 4 sata II connections.

Secondary question is if you have 2 optical drives I guess it would be more important to have the hard drives hooked to SATA III than the optical drives. So optical drives to SATA II? Sheesh. so many questions for what seemed like a simple task.

maybe in order of priority SSD / HDD / Optical drives to parcel out the connectors?

Or maybe I need another motherboard?
