Sata Iii ? SATA vs. SATA II vs. SATA III vs. ESATA

Today I found a 2TB WD SATA III HD for $99. Does that HD require some sort of new/different SATA header/mobo?

And depending on how your eSATA port on your computer operates, it might make the computer "treat" the eSATA external drive the same as if it was an internal SATA drive. For example, I get the eSATA ports on my desktop by using an eSATA bracket that connects to an internal SATA port on my motherboard. As a result, when I connect an external drive by eSATA or an bare internal drive using a "docking station" that connects by eSATA, I can boot from those drives. I use the "docking station" for making clones of my boot drives.
