You state that the maximum size hard drive is 320 GB for this motherboard.... where did you get that data?

Also, does this apply to drives connected to both the IDE controller AND external drives connected to USB?

I have a 1TB external drive, and it locks up when connected at the "Auto-detecting USB Mass Storage Devices" portion of the startup screen. It was a known issue that was supposed to be fixed with a BIOS update (P14 I think) but I updated it to the latest (P20) and it still is an issue.

I have to disconnect the external drive to reboot the PC. Quite a pain.

disable usb from boot order.
(problem)having problem with mass storage freezing system on boot? i had same problem with usb flash,(solution) fixed it by disabling usb from boot order. (reason)it will try to boot from the external drive.
however your upgrading does not be very muchly useful until you change the processor for atleast a C2D and you must have a PCI express VGA card like GT9500 for a graphics quality, so upgrading a PC with old processor and motherboard is a wastage
