installing new SSHD Drive

iMac emc 2210 modeal A1224 SN=W8836042ZE2

I just ordered from ifixit the Seagate 1TB SSHD model ST1000dx001. this was a recommended compatible drive for my iMac. will the install be just a drop in install? do I have to be concerned about the sata bus speeds. The new drive can run at 6gb. I believe my bus speed on the iMac is 3gb. if I need to change speeds, how do I do it?
