Yes, it supports IDE devices. Up to 4 to be exact if you use the IDE
Connectors. The NF7-S is the mobo that has the "S"ATA option.

Nothing to worry about. This board supports both kinds. And you are correct, the wide rectangle shaped connector is for an IDE drive.

Do you know anything else about your current hardware? Is your old hdd 7200rpm? What about your RAM?

Try to get at least Cas 2 PC3500 RAM if you really want to go top shelf FSB speeds.
