FYI
Your recovery partition files are no longer valid.

It's fine. I've never used recovery.. I just have reformatted everytime I get a virus, or whatever.

Does it matter what cache size? Or the size of the GB/s?

I know it'll fit, and will it take just a regular sata cable?

And one last question.. is it regularly formatted into NTFS? The reason I'm buying a new HD is because my old one isn't letting me load vista. It says I have 222GB of free space, but says I can't load it because it's not formatted into NTFS.

Thanks.
It'll work if the motherboard has SATA ports, but for a dollar more, get this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822135106

I know I came in a bit late to the thread, but I just wanted to make a suggestion though. It's a ton better rated than the other one.
