How old is your computer? You need to check if you need an SATA Interfaced HDD,or an IDE Interfaced hardrive.

i bought most of my parts recently (including MB - Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G) so that shouldn't be a problem.

Then that's no problem

I'd recomend the first seagate,but Samsung OEM hardrives are great,and they have a great price!
