It should work with your motherboard, but I would have went for a 7200RPM drive if I was looking for IDE.

ATA/100 is backward compatible will any motherboard.
Though, you probably won't benefit at all from that high transfer speed because you drive runs only at 5400RPM.

In fact, most IDE drives cannot use at all that high transfer speed, because they are too slow. Except maybe the IBM deskstar. But still, I believe that UDMA/66 is more than enough.
