    enhanced IDE is an improvement on normal ide, faster transfer rate if your board supports it, still works as normal even if it doesn't. but $100 bucks seems way cheap even for spoilt american consumers in UK it would be $200+

    Enhanced IDE will work with just about every modern PC. That drive will be fine as a second drive for data and backups.

    If you intend to have only that drive in your system try to find one that is 7200RPM.

    Yes, unless you have a really old computer EIDE should work fine. The reason it's so cheap is because it's only 5400rpm. You can get a 7200 for only $20 more at Comp-U-Plus (I just bought this one):

    5400rpm is good enough. 7200rpm has no noticeable advantage.
