Second Internal Hard Drive

  Wissy 15:45 08 Oct 2005

I am thinking of adding a second internal hard drive to my Compaq Prasario 6254EA Desktop PC (running XP SP2;756 MB RAM; AMD Athlon 2200 - 1800Ghz ) as it currently has only a 60GB hard drive and this is too small for video storage / editing.
However, I'm confused about what type of drive I can buy and install.
Can anyone please advise?

Thanks for speedy response and details of store to buy from, but I've already been looking at such sites and this is what has confused me more because there appears to be several types of drive, e.g. IDE, EIDE, SATA...
My current drive is:
Integrated Hard Drive Controller Type:ATA 100, Hard Drive Type 1 5400 RPM Ultra DMA HDD (copied from PC spec).
Does this make a difference as to what I can buy?
Also, I've seen that some PCs cannot have more than about 130GB memory. Will this affect me?

click here for the present spec's You will need an 80 gig EIDE hard drive, try to get one with 8mb onboard ram.
