On the basis of the model number of that drive, it appears to be a sata drive.
Your motherboard will have at least 2 sata ports so adding a second sata drive shouldn't be a problem. It should also have 1 or 2 IDE controllers so you be ok adding an IDE hard drive instead if you wish.
Be aware however, that if your motherboard only has one IDE controller & that controller already has an optical drive on it, then adding an IDE drive to this controller will slow the IDE hard drive down.
If you do decide to have an sata & an ide hard drive, check with your motherboard manufacturers website to make sure there aren't any known issues with this configuration.
