My motheboard does not support serial ata, but i was thinking to but serial ata 150 promise pci card.
Is this hard drive going to work by using Promise Serial ATA 150 PCI Card?

I don't see why not. However since you're using the PCI bus the drive won't be able to reach its max of 150MB/sec, but I doubt it operates that fast anyway. Should work just fine.

It will work the way it's ment to. All SATA drives are infacted converted PATA drives so all are limited anyway. God knows when the native SATA drives will show up.
