Hello group,

My hard drive died on me few days ago so I'm thinking of buying a new hard drive to replace it. I haven't  been in market for a long time and will appreciate it you could give me heads up on this.

I assembled my PC 5-6 years ago and its current hard drive (the broken one) is an IBM DeskStar 40GB ATA/IDE.

As far as I know SATA won't work on this case since at the time I bought it there was no SATA in the market so do you think the new HDD I have chosen would work on my PC and is it a good choice?
