Needing direct purchase link for a 40 pen 80GB IDE internal hard drive

Hi Everyone;

          I am needing a direct purchase link for a 40 pen 80GB IDE hard drive.  This drive will be used to upgrade the current HDD in a Compaq Desk Pro with a PIII chip in it.  While it is an older computer, I believe the motherboard BIOS still should support the 80GB capacity HDD.  I know some older motherboards will only support HDD up to a specific size because of BIOS limitations.  At any rate, if someone could share a thought or two on that part, it will be greatly appreciated.

           I will look forward to hearing back from everyone regarding this post.

          Thank you.

           George

Hi Everyone;

          Thanks so much for the feedback given to this question.  Earlier today, I ordered the needed 80GB HDD from newegg.com.  The technical specs on it did look appealing.  And, I have ordered merchandise from newegg.com before and have always been satisfied with this company.

           Many thanks again for the help.

           George
