Hard drive connector????
I am getting a 2008 Mac Pro and i am trying to get a Solid state drive for it i have two questions.
What is the connector type on a mac pro from 2008 Sata or Sata II
Also would i really notice a big performance increase in getting a SSD for my OS and programs?????

Throughput = 3.0Gb/s (= 375MB/s theoretical max; ~270 - 300MB/s for real throughput)
Yes, you'd notice a difference, as SSD's exceed mechanical for random access use, such as loading the OS and applications.

SATA II, most likely. Not to mention most SATA II drives are compatible with SATA I controllers and vice versa in my experience (Currently running an HD103UJ in my G5). The connectors are the same.
You would notice a drastic improvement on Application launch and at boot. Not to mention certain processes that rely on small reads would like the SSD too for random access.
EDIT - curses Nanofrog, you beat me to it.
