Since my current motherboard does not support SATA connections, I am wondering if the following HDD will support an IDE interface: Western Digital Genuine Caviar WD800BB 80 GB 7200 RPM ATA 100 Hard Drive. I am under the impression this HDD does support IDE, but, I am not for certain.
Any shared input to this question will be grealy appreciated. Incidentally, here is a direct link to this HDD in anyone might be interested in checking it out. http://micropartsusa.com/index.php?target=products&product_id=58546
. While I believe this 80GB HDD will be a good buy at $24.00, if someone should run across a different IDE HDD which is larger and a better deal, please feel free to post as well.
In the meantime, I will look forward to reviewing everyone's input to this question. I want to get everyone's opinion on this before making this purchase.
