I Have a MESH PC with an Asus A7N8X motherboard and a Maxtor6Y160PO hard drive. My Hard drive is almost full so I intend to add another drive. I'm not sure what type of drive I need, ie ATA, SATA, IDE ? How do I find out what type my existing drive is?....Does the new one Have to match?
If you click on the name of your mainboard that you have posted( Asus A7N8X) it will take you to the asus site where you can click on the picture of your board (second one down) and you will see that it says DMA ata 133, so it is an IDE not SATA drive
