I hope you all realize that if his hard drive isnt SATA, 3.0gbs, and it is IDE (which I highly dbout) that he would also need to get a new motherboard.

I assumed since he had a socket 939 Mobo that he would most likely have SATA, but now that you mention it, you might be right. I was just thinking maybe he bought an IDE HD a long time ago at best buy or something before knowing what SATA was. Thats what I did for a while, then realized I had SATA on my mobo :P

OK look at where your hard drive connects to the mobo and gets power. Does it use a Ribbon ( IDE Cable ) or does it connect with a smaller connector ( black red ). Your cd drive will use ribbons if u dont know what one looks like

alright i found out it was an IDE.

Mikey, your saying that an IDE is a grey ribbon with a black connector to the mobo correct?

I would get RAM that's dual channel cause it looks like you added an old stick of DDR333.
