look to your mobo link. It's the 3rd from the bottom. 2 X SATA. You can also configure it to RAID 0/1.

you should look at every detail of motherboard specs before you buy it, if one neccesary part is not compatible, the system won't function properly or at all

yes this motherboard can run SATA, and if you're unsure how to set up a SATA drive, read Microbell's thread
