I have an old ASUS A8N5X. It says it supports hard drive 133/100/66/33.
I dunno what that means.

I build computers a lot but my memory bank is little. Last time I used this set up was 7 years ago, so I'm totally blank.
It supports IDE and SATA. I just need a 60-100GB drive so I can bank this thing into a server for Minecraft. Probably doesn't even need more than 20GB, but I love being more than safe.

I can't for the life of me remember what any of this means.

I'd prefer to order on Newegg if possible.

Can someone tell me what I can look for? Thanks much!

Your motherboard supports SATA 1.5 Gb/s and the old PATA interfaces. You will want at least a 7200 RPM hard drive for a Minecraft server;

133/100/66/33 are the various speeds the Pata or IDE interface has gone thru over the years.
