Does the Pavilion Elite HPE-450t with the msi ms-7613 (Iona-GL8E) motherboard support SATA revision 3.0 (6mb/sec)?
The (Iona-GL8E) motherboard supports SATA specification 2.0 (3.0 GB/s).

SATA III devices are backwards compatible with SATA II and will be limited to SATA II speeds.
You will not get any noticeable performance improvement by using a SATA III hard drive unless it's a hybrid model. If you want a hard drive performance improvement then consider a SSD or RAID 0 two hard drives.
The SSD option would be my choice. The OCZ Vertex II is an excellent choice for a SATA II SSD and it's a top performer according to CPU MAGAZINE and MAXIMUM PC MAGAZINE.

OCZ SSD Family is not a good choice for fiability.
I've just added a Samsung SSD 840 Serie (500 Gb) to my HPE 430 Fr Desktop, and I'm fully satisfied with it even if the HPE 430 fr does not support the 6Gb/s standard.
I have the following results (tested with DiskMark v 18.104.22.168) :
- Avg write speed : 74.43 Mb/s
- Avg Read speed : 168.03 Mb/s
