Your Dell has a standard IDE drive. Your board only has a standard IDE connection.
So you are limited to an IDE drive of 130gig or smaller if you your OS is before XP SP1.

If your OS is later than XP Service Pack 1, you may go larger than that as long as it is an IDE drive.

You also have the option of buying an SATA to IDE converter, if you have XP SP1 or later, and you may then go with any SATA drive you want, at any size you want.
