my motherboard is msi kt4av,
appolo kt 400a chipset.
both hdds are recognised by bios.
now i visited msi site where i found out that my motherboard supports upto 160gb hdd.

>> motherboard supports upto 160gb hdd <<   This means that it will support HD's up to 160gig in size, per HD.
The number of HD's and what they total is not a factor. You should be able to run 4 HD's of 160gig each, with no trouble.

probably it supports even larger disc drives, but it can be limited in the BIOS.
If you want to run bigger drives than recognised by the bios, you can use a PCI to ATA, or a PCI to SATA adaptor
