u-dma / ultra-ata

I have been asked to upgrade a family members pc. This machine was built in 99 using a TMC Ti5VGF mobo, k6iii 450, and a 13gb ultra Dma hdd. matrox g400 g/gard

now I dont really want to suggest spending to much money as i am already building them a new machine, but they want to give a bit of life to the old one.
my plan is to boost memory, add a mx440 g/card and pop in a new hdd.

This where i am unsure, as i have never come across a U-DMA /66 hdd will i be able to use a normal ultra-ata drive.

Your help would be most welcome.

James

Yes you can use the newer hard drives in an older PC. Just don't expect the performance of the faster drive though.
