I read the guide on posting a new thread, but for now I am just copying this from some other useless forum. If more info is needed I can provide it but right this second I'm in a bit of a time crunch. Thanks ahead of time for any help.
Not looking for anything special, just a solid reliable hard-drive. Am not going to need a ridiculous amount of storage, 500 GBs should be fine. My system is kind-of old (like 4 years).
My SATA connections on my motherboard box (built it myself...somehow) say it has SATA 1. Is that the same thing as SATA 1.5 gb/s? My motherboard is an MSI K8N Neo4 is that helps.
I read that regardless of the speed of the new SATA drive I get, it should be compatible. My question is, since I have the old SATA connection, is it worth spending a bit more money to get a drive with more cache and RPMs, or won't it matter because my SATA is the older version.
I am looking at a few drives on newegg. I guess the basic question is, will there be a big difference between these drives on my system? And will they for sure be compatible? Sorry for the noob questions...
Now I know the 2nd one has 1/4 of the storage, but I am wondering more about the cache and stuff. I guess any help at all would be appreciated, hell, just tell me what to buy.
And those drives were just the first ones I found,not like the only 2 I would consider. Don't really want to spend much, certainly nothing over $100. Thanks guys.
