    i have a motherboard taht i want.
    i have almost everyother aspect of the computer checked out and ready to go, except for a hard drive.

    I have a 256Gb external hard drive that i can connect, but i need an internal hard drive.

    The mother board says it suports:
    PATA 2 x ATA100 up to 4 Devices
    PATA RAID NV RAID 0/1/0+1 JBOD
    SATA 1.5 Gb/s 4
    SATA RAID NV RAID 0/1/0+1 JBOD

    Can i use a hard drive that says it is a SATA 3.0Gb/s instead of a 1.5Gb/s?

    Yeah you can use a SATA 2 (3GB/s) on a SATA mother board, it`ll only run at 1.5 GB/s though.

    EDIT:You can set the jumper on the SATA 3.0 Gb/s to operate as a SATA 150.
    Then if you ever get another MB, then at least you will already have a
    SATA 3.0 Gb/s.
