If the disk is indeed IDE, then SATA hard disks are not compatible with that. You need to get an IDE hard disk to use there.

your motherboard does support both ide and sata drives. yes you can add that new sata drive and use both types at the same time.

Oh crap, for a second there I thought the A8V was a laptop. ASUS has an A8 series of laptops, so I didn't think it through.

SATA would work there. Just make sure your PSU has SATA power connectors.
