Hello,

I want to by this server Hard Disk for my desktop PC. I hope it is possible to setup it in desktop?

Yes you can install that on your pc - I'm not sure why you are looking at this one though.

I would get this one - I actually have this in my pc

plus it is less expensive.

It will actually depend on whether or not your system board supports SATA II.  Most of the newer boards do, but you did not mention what type of PC you are using or how old it is.  The best thing to do would be to check the computer manufacture's website or the manual for your system board to see if your computer can support the drive.
