Serial ATA hard drive compatible?

  henza_mapenza 23:15 11 Dec 2004

i am thinking of buying a new serial ATA hard drive for my computer which is about 18 months old. It is an advent PC and i do not know whether the new seria ATA drive will be compatible because it uses a new type of cable. Will my computer support this new drive?

Check your motherboard for sata headers on the motherboard, if you have them, great, if not you would have to fit a sata pci card.
