My current motherboard is: product manu. webpageGigabyte GA-K8NSC-939
Form Factor ATX
CPU Socket Type 939 [AMD AMR2]
FSB 800MHz Hyper Transport (1600MT/s)
Chipsets North Bridge NVIDIA nForce3 250Gb
Number of Memory Slots 4×184pin
Memory Standard DDR 400
2 connectors for SATA 1.5 Gb/s [First-generation SATA interfaces, now known as SATA 1.5 Gbit/s]
I do not plan to use it as a RAID at all. just to connect 1 or 2 more SATA internal HDD at faster speeds.
I'm specifically not sure about the PCI-e and PCI-e 2.0 on my old MOBO.
