Default Which hard drives are compatible with the ABIT NF7-S motherboard?

Hello,

I have an ABIT NF7-S motherboard. My hard drive just broke down so I need to buy a new one. How can I figure out if a hard drive is compatible with my motherboard. Will any of these hard drives below work with my motherboard?

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 160GB Hard Drive
(Ultra ATA/100, 7200 RPM, 8MB - MPN: ST3160023ARK) 65.28 USD


Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 160GB Hard Drive
(Serial ATA II, 7,200 RPM, 8MB - MPN: ST3160812AS) 49.94 USD


Seagate ST3250623ARK 250GB Hard Drive
(Ultra ATA, 7,200 RPM, 16MB - MPN: ST3250623ARK) 69.99 USD

Thanks,

Herringtrader

Any of the above will work. Make sure you have the right cables. In that price range, this would be a great hard drive:

You need a SATA cable for it though. Looks like this:

I think this is in the wrong gallery.

But yeah those all are compatible, I would go with the SATA since they are faster than the old IDE drives. The one that freestyler picked out is an awesome drive, my cousin has it and it ALMOST keeps up w. my raptor lol.

Well, your hard drive is SATA. Now, you need a compatible motherboard to have SATA onboard. Don't worry. I did the look fo you. It is compatible. All you need is the cable shown above and a compatible power cable for it. Just go to the shop and ask one SATA power connector.

It's something more or less like this:
