Default Installing Windows Vista to a SATA3G hard drive

I just thought of something (and forgive me if it's a dumb question), but with the new machine i'm building (click here for the rig specs) I'm planning on installing Windows Vista x64 to a SATA3G hard drive (to be specific, a Seagate Barracuda 160GB 7200RPM SATA3G).

Will I need any extra drivers to allow Windows Vista to install to the sata drive? or will Vista recognize the drive right away and let me install to it without anything else?
