Depending on the connection of your computer---either IDE or SATA, there are many HD's available. I recently purchased a 250GB drive for what a 40GB would have cost about 18 months ago. I have used Maxtor and Western Digital and have had good luck with both brands. Maxtor may be somewhat cheaper in cost. I would suggest that you buy one with a 7200 rotation speed and with the LARGEST capacity you can afford. Drive space fills rapidly.
Hi. I need help looking for a compatible hard drive. I have 1.6 gighrz pentium 4 intel, 512 mb ram, only 13 gig hard drive (Maxtor), dvd rom, cd rom, cd-rw. I would like to upgrade the 13 gig hard drive to a 40 gig hard drive. (I really don't need anymore than a 40). What kind/type of hard drive should I purchase. Any coments will be appreciated. Thanks!
