    I going to get the Maxtor 300GB Ultra16 PATA Internal Hard Drive and a DVD burner but I'm not sure about these PATA/SATA/IDE things. Is there a way to know if that will work on my motherboard? I know how to install it and work it but I have no clue what kind of interface I have.

    Right now, I got these in my computer...
    CD/RW burner
    DVD Rom Drive
    148GB HDD

    Thanks.

    What motherboard do you have?

    I highly recommend Seagate over Maxtor.

    Your board will support both SATA and PATA, so you can go with whatever strikes your fancy.
