"Suitable". Hmmmmmmmmmmm..............what's in a word?

I'd get something else unless you are very constrained by budget or have no other choice from your one and only supplier.

I would not get a sata 3 Gbps if you are now using a sata 6 Gbps, unless you`re just gonna use it to store data, movies, images etc
