    Not very clear wording… yes, you can plug both IDE and SATA devices into the same motherboard, and all will work. Does that answer your question?

    Might want to check that gfx card goes in the mobo – most new mobos only take PCI-E cards

  3. You can run both an IDE drive and SATA drive(s) at the sametime. I have 2 RAID arrays plus a IDE drive on its own. Dont think you can put them both in the same RAID array though.

    yea, thats the main thing, i have an old IDE hard disk that i want to use.

    and yea, the new motherboard has an AGP slot. why, is PCI-E faster than AGP now?

    PCI-E has around double the bandwidth, usually 16x as opposed to AGP's max of 8x from what I know
