Hi,

 

Can't be SATA I but you can definitely use SATA III which be backward compatible with SATA II. Nearly all SSD's are SATA III now therefore you won't be wrong with that. No information form its manual but you can check yourself using the following tool

 

       http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/pc-wizard.html

 

It will shows the similar information (6Gb/s is SATA 3):
