    I'm picking up my new 865PE Neo2-FIS2R MB tomorrow and building the system.
    How should I connect my Maxtor Ultra ATA 133 160 Gig HD. The drive came
    with an Ultra ATA/133 PCI Controller CardThe 865PE offers IDE support thru
    the ICH5R but the documentation indicates that it does not support ATA 133.
    But one would assume that data thruput would be better if it bypasses the
    PCI bus. I have no interest in setting up a RAID. What's the best
    solution. Advice appreciated.
