S-478 and PCI-E

Hey I was thinking of going the pci-e route without changing my cpu at least for now. What do you guys think of the mobo above? Is it a decent ocer? Does it have a pci(-e) lock? The only problem I can see is the lack of IDE ports. It only has one and all my drives are IDE, so I will have to get an IDE controller card.
BTW if I do get this board I am thinking of getting this Graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150118

It does have an EIDE port. Only supports 2 ATA devices. And for 89 bucks I would expect not too much of an overclocker. But then again, who knows!

Yeah I was kinda thinking it may not be a great ocer but after all it is s478 with pci-e (which is hard to get).
