Get the same type of drive that is fitted, also, this sounds like aN IDE drive if there is another connection (plug?) on the cable, the SATA leads I have seen are single-ended if you see what I mean.
Simply switch off your computer, mount the drive in the case and connect the power and motherboard leads then switch on and let windows find the drive. You should then be able to format the drive from my computer or explorer and away you go.
One thing or problem is that your drive letters for your cd/dvd drives will change so you may have problems with some programs where you load a cd/dvd in to access the program.
A program like Partitionmagic will sort this though. If you have a copy it will also format the drive as well as re-arrange your drive letters/programs.
