    Yes, but you will only be able to use the features provided by your SATA controller. Which make very little difference in real world terms

    Yeah, it should work, SATA2 uses the same connector as SATA, and is backwards compatible. However, you will find that the bandwidth is limited, but very small difference in real terms.
