I just ordered a Seagate Barracude 120 GB drive with NCQ. I didn't discover that my Asus P4P800 motherboard (with ICH5) does not support NCQ until it was too late. Will the drive still function in all other ways?

And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign</pre><p></font color=red>

Of course, NCQ is an option, not a requirement.
