I would imagine a SATA III SSD would work on a PC that only has a SATA II controller, so if they are close in price, I would go with the faster drive.
You have nothing to lose by getting the faster drive.
See if this free utility will tell you what "speed" your SATA controller can run at. (PC Wizard 2010).
According to the southbridge specs for your chipset, there is support for 3rd generation SATA drives.
See page 13 of the below document--SATA controller.
