will this hard drive
Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000 rpm Serial ATA150 Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16822144160

work with this motherboard?
DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

...because the hard drive is SERIAL ATA 150 and the motherboard says that it has 4 X SATA II slots....?!??!!?! so will the hard drive still work with that mobo?

SATA 2 is backwards compatible, which means it will work with SATA 1. Just at Sata 1 Speeds not at SATA 2 because the drive is not SATA 2. they will work together to put it simply.

Its kinda dumb, on newegg the choice for SATA 2 is

SATA 3.0 Gb/s

Thats the speed of SATA 2. there are Harddrives on newegg. use that option.
