Default Which hard drives are compatible with the ABIT NF7-S motherboard?

Hello,

I have an ABIT NF7-S motherboard. My hard drive just broke down so I need to buy a new one. How can I figure out if a hard drive is compatible with my motherboard. Will any of these hard drives below work with my motherboard?

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 160GB Hard Drive
(Ultra ATA/100, 7200 RPM, 8MB - MPN: ST3160023ARK) 65.28 USD


Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 160GB Hard Drive
(Serial ATA II, 7,200 RPM, 8MB - MPN: ST3160812AS) 49.94 USD


Seagate ST3250623ARK 250GB Hard Drive
(Ultra ATA, 7,200 RPM, 16MB - MPN: ST3250623ARK) 69.99 USD

Thanks,

Herringtrader

This motherboard supports:
- 2 channel UltraDMA/100/66/33 Bus Master IDE (with support for up to 4 ATAPI-devices)
- Support for SerialATA (2 channels)

This means that it will run PATA (parralel ata or just ata)/Ultra ATA 100, 66, or 33. It can also support SATA (serial ata) 150.

Option 1 & 3 will work, making option 3 better.

Thanks for the quick reply! Can you recommend a hard drive that is better for my motherboard than the option 3 HD? I need a cheap one with 70-250 GB, preferably seagate because of the 5 year warranty they offer.
