    Hi all,

    I am planning to buy a maxtor 80GB ata133 hdd. My pc's mobo supports ata100 as per the manual. Will this hdd still work fine with the mobo?

    Need For Speeeed>>> :lol:

    Anyway forget it. You are right abt what you stated. Guess what, I did not buy Maxtor HDD after all, i took seagate. Since i am not going to get any benefit out of maxtor anyway.

    BTW is it true that seagate accquired maxtor on dec 2005. :roll:
