OK, so I jsut realized that my mobo has one IDE slot but 2 SATA slots...

the noob i am... I didn't see that and am now stuck out of luck with 2 ATA HDD and 2 CD ROM Drives but with only one IDE cable...


I have made my mind to buy an SATA HDD, however, the question is... my mobo says it supports up to 1.5GB/s. Does that mean I cannot get a HDD that is at 3.0GB/s? If I get a 3.0Gb/s HDD, will it still be useable on the mobo?

You could get a 3.0 HDD, most have jumpers you can set to make them work with 1.5
