I don't know if I'm even wording this question correctly but I think you guys will get my meaning hopefully.

My current MB (cheapo ASRock GEPro-M2) is:
IDE1: ATA 133 / Ultra DMA Mode 6
IDE2: ATA 133 / Ultra DMA Mode 6

I am about to purchase a new HD (this one hopefully) which is listed as ATA 100.

Does my new HD have to be ATA 133 or is it backwards compatible like RAM?

My current HD (Samsung Spinpoint P Series 80GB IDE ATA133) is about to give up the ghost, it's doing a scandisk on me sometimes twice a day (BT killed it I think). I'm going to keep the beater for BT only and use the new one for my system.

Thanks for advice in advance,
istrain
