Glc.. I finished building with an IntelDG965ry MB / chipset two weeks ago . Put in two Seagate 250MB SATA drives (was told that only SATA hard drves should be used). On the only IDE channel, put a Teac CDROM and a Sony DVDRW drive. Loaded WinXP. All drives work fine. Only problem was trying to put floppy drive in... recognized in CMOS and Wndow's Explorer, but won't read or write to a floppy. Finally attached a USB floppy drive. Works fine.
