How can I tell if my board resists a 500gb hard drive?

I have a desktop pc with an Intel D865PERL motherboard that works as server and I am planning on expanding the storage space a bit more because it already has 4 hd, a 250 sata drive, and 3 120 ide drives, all almost full so i must take inmediate action. An option is getting a 500gb 7200rpm seagate sata hard drive to forget about the store issues for a while. Another option would be getting a huge external hd in case the board cant take that much internaly.
So, the main question is, how to tell if it does work ok with the internal 500gb or not. I was searching online but cant find any useful info yet ,besides i trust you guys more than random forums so, any help?
Thanks in advance

You mean add a 500 GB sata drive?  If it supports the 250 then the 500 is fine.

The board will cope with that size drive no problems. For more info about the board itself look here - http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865PERL/

I had made a mistake, the larges hd in the server has 200gb not 250, does this change anything? or is it still ok and ready to rumble with 500?
