hi guys, well first i have a hp pavillion 733n pc. i had the case swapped out because my old power supply quit on me and the new 350w one needed a new case to fit. it has 4 external bays and disk drive and what looks like room for 5 hard drives.
now ive been reading around on this site for a while and learned that i needed sisoftware to find out my mobo specs to see what can fit..
the spects are-
First International (FIC)
MP Support: 1 CPU(s)
MPS Version: 1.40
Serial Number: K01241141321
System BIOS: 10/07/2002-KM266-8233-6A6LVF0BC-00
Chipset: VIA KT266/A, KT333/A
what i want to do is upgrade my pc in pieces starting with the HD the one i had in mind is http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-358&depa=1
now i dont actually need that size but was thinking the 16mb cache was nice.. will this sata hd work with my mobo and will my mobo allow me to install 2?. what i want to do is get the 2 in then transfer the info from my 100 gb to the 250gb
second upgrade is going to be the mobo this is the one i had in mind
i heard these mobo's are nice. now i know i probablly am not going to be able to use my processor with this mobo which is
Model: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2400+
Model Number: 2400 (estimated)
Performance Rating: PR2897 (estimated)
Package: Socket A PGA
so i was thinking of going with this bad boy http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-463&depa=1
and just keeping everything else the way it is for now..
am i going in the right direction? is there anything im missing.. i am always willing to learn if someone is willing to teach.. sorry for such a long post.
