  1. I just got a ASUS A8V-E SE Mobo and I now have a Hitachi deskstar ata133 ide HDD.

    Heres the specs on the MOBO for storage.

    Storage/RAID South Bridge:
    - 2 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33
    - 2 x Serial ATA, support RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD

    The HDD will work on this MOBO will it?

    It should. Just hook the drive up to the UltraDMA ribbon cable and it should be good to go.

    all recent motherboards such as yours with IDE built in are max out for IDE speed. You're fine.
