  1. Just a quick question.
    If for example i bought a 320Gb Hdd, would any motherboard (and windows) support this amount? The mobo is SATA.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    If you look on your mobo, you can see what the exact name is of the mobo. If you put it here I can tell you if it works.

    If the mobo has SATA, then it supports the drive size for sure.

    Windows versions is a bit trickier: you need XP SP1 or 2000 SP3 at least.

    Hi guys
    Thanks for the replies
    I havnt actually got a Mobo for my new rig yet but the one i am looking at is the Asrock 775V88. I have XP SP2 so that must not be a problem?

    What do you think of that mobo by the way? I know this is not the right thread but anyway.... I am currently building a rig and that is the one that I want to buy.
