Yeah, you should have no problems. I've never heard of a board only being able to run only 2 drives, considering you can run 2 drives per IDE chain.

His other CDROM might not have liked the serial ATA that the board comes with, but most (if not all) new drives are OK with it.

Yeah... It'll run at a maximum of 333 Mhz. But if you raise the FSB it will force the memory to go higher...
