Make sure your mobo has a SATA controller, or by a SATA controller card for your PCI.

If u r using MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum NVIDIA NForce4 Ultra mobo, u can get a SATA hardisk because it can definitely support it.

AMD Athlon 64x2 4000+
2GB Kingston DDRII667Mhz
MSI 256MB GeForce8500GT
Western Digital 160GB SATAII HDD
Maxtor 80GB 8M ATA133 HDD
