New drive compatibility

I want to upgrade my WD 500GB Black SATA III 7200rpm 32MB to a 1TB Black SATA lll 7200rpm 64 MB. The Crucial System Scanner recommends the WD 1TB Blue Serial ATA-600 64MB for my system. Will the 1TB Black work in my system?  Does WD have a system scanner?  Also, why does Crucial only list SATA 600 models and no SATA lll  ? (Sorry for such a Noob question.)

Hi if they say the blue drive will work the black drive will also and the black drive has a 5 year warranty.
