Its the same thing... anything with ide and ata is compatible cause they use the same cables. theres regular ata (33/66 MB/s - 40/80 pin cable) and ultra ata (133 MB/s - UDMA 5)

Your motherboard will support that hard drive.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
