Hi every1, remember last week I was asking advice to get a Core 2 Duo PC?
well, it's here.
I had it custom made (no big company; independent Tech guy) on Wednesday and a few hours ago they brought it to my home.
It is a very 'basic' system, as my plan is to upgrade as it goes, or in other words as it becomes economically possible for me .
-- Core 2 Duo E4400 2 GHz L2 Cache, 800 MHz
-- Biostar P4M890-M7 SE SATA/RAID
-- 80 GB Hard Drive (don't remember brand)
-- DVD-RW/CD-RW Combo (cheap one I guess)
-- 512 RAM (I know I know, I'll get 2 GB as soon as there is a 'sale')
-- Case: ATX 450W BCC Silver, with blue lights, lol.
so, go ahead, critique my machine .
But well, as most times, I find myself in a dilemma,
When I asked the guy for this PC, I only asked for two specific 'must be' things:
a Core 2 Duo E4400 and that it be compatible with my Maxtor 300GB ATA/100 Hard Drive so I can use it as a Slave HD,
but now that I got my PC out of its box I find that it had a SATA Hard Drive (small black cable),
so my question now is,
will I still be able to connect my Maxtor (with it's flat gray 40 pin cable) to my new PC?
I do think so, cus I can see a couple of similar connectors on this MOBO, but still, I would really like to hear some advice.
Cus I have only used two HDs with connected to the same gray cable (master/slave) so again any guidance would be great.
