So, it has been about 6 years since I put together my current computer. I am now looking to build a new one, but I am now somewhat out of touch with some technological specifications and I am having a hard time deciphering them.
My quandary is that I don't want to have to get a new hard-drive because I am a cheap bastard, but I can't tell if it will work the motherboard I am interested in.
(Please do not gift. My game bank is already full.)
The "2 Dev. Max" means the motherboard only supports 2 PATA (commonly referred to as IDE) devices.
Get a new hard drive anyway. 6 years is pretty old for a hard drive, and 80gb is not a lot of storage.
If you are only upgrading your computer for the first time in 6 years, I think you can go ahead and swing the cash to upgrade all of its parts this one time.
