  1. Hello,
    I just bought a Maxtor 80gig 7200 133 HD which I'm going to be using for video editing and it came with a freeeeeee mAxtor PCI Ultra ATA 133 card. I already have a sound card on my PCI bus. Should I install the drive as my primary slave at ultra ata 100 (which is what my Shuttle AK31 motherboard supports) or should I install it on the PCI ATA 133 card?

    Lonman Bleh!

    You can try it as the primary slave. If you're happy with it there then cool... if not, or if it's not recognized correctly then you'll need to put it on the freeeee card.
