Default Fast HDD

the Raptor which you are no doubt thinking of is actually SATA and yes it is compatable with any board that has SATA or SATA2

Remember SATAII is backwards compatible with SATAI.

Cache is another thing to consider with harddrives, if you want a faster HD sometimes its better to look for the 16MB Cache ones instead of the Higher RPM ones.
