What do you mean by "support"? Many systems can use a 3TB drive to hold data, but can't boot from it. Do you want to use the drive as a data drive or a boot drive?

Support as a secondary drive yes. As a boot drive no, as your mainboard lacks an UEFI bios.

As other's have said, you can use it as a secondary/storage drive. Just be sure to make it a GPT partition and not MBR.
