Default upgrade options

Okay I want a 3tb sata drive,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145472

That one but my board doesn't support 6gb/s. Or whatever so I need like a new board or something
If their is somekind of card I can get idk that might be out of the question cuz my 480 with the cooler on it covers both my pci e slots, is their anything else I can get? So I don't have to get a new mobo or w.e?

or can you recomend me a board my cpu is the amd 965 and I have 1066 ddr2 ram, see sig for full details
Thanks I only need one pciexpress slot and just want the new board to be able to use that drive


Want the new board to be full size


Or are their jumpers on the drive to lower it from 6gb to 3gb or w.e it is?

all the hardrives are compatible (generally), as far as i know. i dont think you would need a new hard drive if it uses the SATA port.
Why do you need 3TB ? I have every movie i love, and every song i have ever heard, and many games and programs, and I still have more then 100gigs left on my 640gig.

Sata3 (6Gb/s) drives are supposed to be backward compatible and should plug on Sata1 (1.5Gb/s) or SATA2 (3Gb) ports without any problem.
Anyway, no hard drive can sustain even the 150MB/s that sata1 delivers... Only SSD get limited by the transfer rate.

If you are going to use that 3tb drive as a boot drive it won't work.
