Default Ordering: Questions/Compatibilty

Newegg Wish List
Video Card
Case
CPU

That's what I've came up with thus far. I've been trying to find great deals on the net and I have found a few, but im not sure if the motherboard and the hdd's would be compatible. The specs for the mobo says it supports:
PATA 2 x ATA 133 up to 4 Devices
PATA RAID RAID 0/1
SATA 4 x SATA II
SATA RAID RAID 0/1

But I'm wondering if it supports any IDE.... if so what type?

Also, I want to know if there are any better deals that you know of.
Btw, is this the right motherboard?
Sorry, but I'm kind of getting the jitters before ordering, this is my only shot at getting a new pc, and this is my first build.

Comp Usa currently has a 160 MB IDE hard drive for 40 bucks after rebates.

Also try gettign the NEC burner.

Also, there are some nice 60-80 dollar power supplies that are decent in quality. You should check them out. Go to DFI-street /64 bit motherboard/PSU sticky and look at the value power supply companies.
