I own a Dell Dimension 8300 desktop which I bought when SATA drives where first starting to come out and it has a port on it for a SATA connection. I was hoping to buy the following hard drive:
"Western Digital / Caviar SE16 / 500GB / 7200 / 16MB / SATA-300 / OEM / Hard Drive"
And I first need to make sure that it is compatible with my motherboard. Does anyone know whether this drive will connect and function properly with my old motherboard SATA port? BTW, please describe to me the solution and don't just send me links to figure it out myself.
