What is the largest hard
As I recall, this model has one IDE channel on, which typically powered an optical drive. The manufacturer claims that it supports one IDE drive, in theory, you could set the IDE HDD on the second connector of the IDE cable (secondary slave), however, it may be that the Bios will not recognize this.
My own thoughts would be, as this has 2 SATA ports, to leave the IDE connection alone and for the Optical drive and put another SATA HDD on the other SATA connector.
If you need to use the IDE drive, you can get an IDE to SATA adapter and that would enable you to use it connecetd to the SATA connector
As to capacity, I'd assume it would run any size of HDD

I purchased a K8M800-M7A Motherboard,
Not sure how u shorted it out installing ram. Theres only 1 way the put it in and there should have been NO power on the board at the time. AND I'd like to know how you think the board is shorted out. What is happening? It's a very rare occurrence and there are other easy fix issues that might make a person think the board is fried. Let me know your answers to these questions so I can help further.

My motherboard is not working
Without you describing the problem it's impossible to suggest solutions, except purchasing another board. 6 months is a lot of time. I would get rid of this motherboard an bought another brand ( Gigabye, Asus are excellent brand names).

I could not found biostar N68S3B driver for windows 7 ultimate 32-bit os
I went to the download drivers page of the BioStar website for your mobo here:
and the VGA driver for Vista and Windows 7 is the same one 188.8.131.5234 (the "x86" indicates 32-bit, but the driver looks to be the same for both 32 & 64 bit).
Your question about the AMD Athlon can be answered quite easily. It is a CPU and does not need any specific driver. You should however download and install the chipset drivers for the mobo.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
