k, i know that SATAII drives are backwards compatible with SATA (I) connectors, but i have a SATA (I) drive and im lookin at a mobo with only SATAII connections (MSI Neo4 SLI).

will my raptor still work on these SATAII ports? idk much about SATA. i googled it but couldnt find the right answers (only that SATAII is backwards compatible with I. this means that SATA should work with SATAII)

connections look different (maybe they arent, or maybe a simple cable fix), but i am a SATA noob. please help.

Yes the raptor will work on SATAII ports... It will just work at ATA150 rather than 300
