Yes, both are compatable, you might have to load drivers for the sata depending on your motherboard.

Yes - I do.

Yes. Depending on the motherboard as jimv7 has said you might need to install SATA drivers.
I worked on a cheap ASROCK motherboard a couple of weeks ago and it didn't need drivers and my ASUS motherboard doesn't either. Both have the SATA controller built in to the motherboard.
