SATA (Serial ATA) Harddrives are the new generation of harddrives .. They are faster than current PATA(Parallel ATA ) harddrives.
To Learn More about it go to http://www.directron.com/patasata.html

Ur current motherboard will not support SATA harddrives

Also ur motherboard can take DDR 266 (PC2100) Memory .. Check what type of memory u have installed already .. n' buy the same type of memory

To see the specs of ur motherboard go to http://tw.giga-byte.com/motherboard/products/Products_GA-8IEXP%20(Rev%201.2).htm

Parallel ATA Connectors
Serial ATA Connectors

Parallel & Serial ATA Cables

Peace
