Default Do I have SATA 1 or 2?

My Desktop is a Dell Dimension 4600

Neither the Intel Chipset or Processor Identification tool works. Probably because I'm running Windows 7.

So, how do I determine if I have SATA 1 or 2? I've never used a SATA HDD. I have 3 IDE HDDs installed but would like to upgrade.
