Can I use over 137GB?

I'm thinking of buying a new 160GB (or perhaps 200GB) WD 8MB 7200RPM HD to add to my aging 60GB drive.

I have an ASUS A7V8X
(http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socketa/a7v8x/overview.htm)

I can't find out whether or not the mobo supports drives over 137GB...
I am using Windows XP SP1
Athlon XP 2700+
512 PC2700
GF4 Ti4200 128MB 8x AGP
LiteOn 811S DVDRW
Maxtor 60GB 2MB 7200RPM

Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Yes, it does.

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  2. Thanks for the answer.
    But just to be sure, you know I was talking about the A7<b>V</b>8X right?
    Will I need to update the BIOS? Or should the factory BIOS do the job?

    Thanks

  3. All the 8x boards were produced after the 48-bit update for UDMA100, and I think your board came with ATA133 (which supports large hard drives by default).

  4. Yup, AFAIK it's ATA 133. Thanks for the help!
