My system information is in my signature. I have an ECS Elitegroup P4VMM2 mb currently. Will the 74 gb raptor work with this? In looking at the manual it has udma, and ata 133. I don't see anything about Sata.

I'll be upgrading to an Abit IS7 motherboard in the next month or so but I would like to get this new hard drive soon.

Celeron 2.0 g (overclocked + 0.00 g); 256 mb 400 ddr + 128 mb 2100 ddr; p4vmm2 mb; soon to have 2.8c, Abit IS7 mb, 512 ddr 400, 76 gb raptor hd

Does your mobo support Sata?

Truth is somewhere out there!

Check on the manufacturers web site to see if the motherboard supports SATA, I doubt that it does. You have two options:
1)Buy a SATA-PATA converter
2)Buy a PCI SATA adaptor card

If your getting a new motherboard I would just wait and get the drive at the same time a the new board.
