    Hi guys, what U been up to?

    well, I would like to buy a second HD for my PC.
    right now I have 80G with 512ram,
    and I want at least a 200G, so I can do a new install and leave my 80G for applications and the 200 one for media.

    so, can I go to the store and buy any 200g HD?,
    or are there special requirements for every machine?

    For example,
    right now Fry's has this one, and thought it's not 200, the price seems very nice.
    But how do I know if my PC will take it?

    If you're looking for SATA then I recommend:

    look at how the hd you have now is connected to the motherboard. If it's with a big flat cable (like your cd/dvd drive) then you'd want an IDE hd. If it's a smaller cable like this then that then you'd want a SATA hd. Other then that, you should be good.

    It's quite surprising how much those hard drive have dropped in price. That one i n Canada goes for 109$ on ncix.com

    EDIT: That link isn't a combo deal anymore. It was 500GB + 250GB for $209

    It is still 500GB for $209 though.

    Your idea is a good one. I use a 120Gb drive for my O/S and apps and is more then I really need. Meanwhile I have a 300Gb drive for all my media.

    Add your new HD, reboot, open "my computer", right click the new drive and select "format." Then you're ready to go.

    It might need to have at least one partition created. Right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage' then click 'Disk Management'.

    If you can, I would get a new seagate harddrive. they're quiet and reliable.

    Because if it is, it probably runs like you - very homosexually.
