The ATA133 standard card:

ATA-133 Ultra ATA-133 PCI IDE Bus Master Controller supports the new Ultra ATA/133 drives, as well as being backward compatible with Ultra ATA/100, 66, 33 and other older hard disks.

You can use a card that says that in the documentation with an 80 pin cable for the new drive.
