A friend asked me to make a couple of recommendations for his PC. He's fixing to do a reformat and wanted to do some minor upgrades at the same time.
He has a Dell Dimension 8300
Windows XP Home
Intel Pentium 4, 3000 MHz (15 x 200)
Intel Canterwood i875P/E7210
512 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
BIOS - Phoenix (02/23/04)
What he wants:
2. New HDD to backup what he already has, and then to use for future storage after Windows reinstall.
He currently has 512 (specs above)
My recommendation would be this, as it needs to be a set - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148007
He currently has a Seagate 120GB (ST3120026AS - 120 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA)
My recommendation would be - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148140
So my questions are:
Are these suggestions feasible? Specs are OK, etc?
Is there any downside to purchasing an OEM HDD?
