Cuss? I think you mean because.

 

You don't have to have sata 3 to connect it, it will still work on sata 1.

 

Upgrading your mobo would be a good idea.

You won't even use all the speed of a sata 2 port on modern SSDs, 

 

Sata 2 = 3GB/s, Modern SSDs = around 550MB/s

Wrong. SATA 2 is 1,5 GB/s which is 250 MB/s.

SATA 1 = 1.5Gb/s.= 187.5MB/s

SATA 2 = 3Gb/s = 375MB/s

SATA 3 = 6Gb/s = 750MB/s.

 

8 bits = 1 byte,

 

But anyways, yeah I realized that, a modern ssd would definitely max out a sata 2 port, though will still be faster than a traditional HDD.
