Have recent bought a new hard drive - 320GB (currently got a 40gb)

But ive been told its to powerful to be compatible with my motherboard etc!

Can that be true?

Anyone got any ideas?

how about links to cheap pcs, i dont need a monitor just the tower?

I would think if anything you will need a bigger power supply on your tower.

Is it an external drive?

Who told you it was to powerful? did they mean that it was incompatiable with it maybe being sata and you motherboard only supporting ide?

Their was a problem about 20yrs ago where certain bios could only handle certain limits but this is now prhistoric until we get upto ridiculious sizes

was my dads mate who fixs the comp all the time. The comp is about 6 year old. I think ill just get that one from asda at £260. Surely the hard drive would fit that?

how do i go about disposing of my old hard drive as it must contain all my bank details etc?
