I needed to get a right angle sata cable for my hd because my gfx card goes right over the sata ports on my mobo and was lookin online. They only right angle ones are pretty much for the original sata not sata 2. is there any difference in speed actually or is it just a name thing? also if it is, has anyone else found right angle cables for sata2? links please?

I have a set of SATA 2.0 angled cables that came with my Epox motherboard. Using them on my upgrade. :)

"There is no such thing as SATA rated at 150mb/s or rated at 300mb/s. It is
just SATA cable. Don't get confused by the marketing definitions."

Those look really nice! Could present a problem if the SATA connections on the motherboard are arranged vertically with angled heads on the cable.

Newegg has these for sale: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16812104557
