Yes, and it may not support SATA II - either way your performance will not be affected too much - what was the subscore for the HDD in your WEI?.

The WD2500JD is a SATA 1 (1.5Gb/s) drive.

I thought it might be a 3Gb/s drive with a 1.5Gb/s compatibility jumper in place, but no.

(I doubt that it's an issue in practice. The original WDC 10,000 RPM 36GB Raptor drives used a 1.5Gb/s interface, for example.)

Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I don't know if you'll get better fps, I don't think that changed for me. But 7 runs alot smoother than Vista overall. I do notice a difference.
