Your mobo has SATA ports... i checked... its as easy as hooking a joystick into an atari... the manual should have the default SATA port that you should use for a single HD...

yeah thanks a lot. I also had a question about the dual video card slots on the mobo. Is it gonna make a huge difference if I dont buy two video cards?

actually dual SLI doesnt work from top and bottom. SLI or nvida cards work by one fuctioning background and the other one fuctions characters and your hud etc. it would make a difference in demanding games you play. but if its not demanding it wont make that big of a difference.

Sata is faster... if you have a 10,000 RPM hard drive... otherwise it's no different. (I know this from experience.)
