Will this hard disk be ok? Pls help

I'm thinking about upgrading the hard disk on my computer. Will this computer be able to take a 200gb hard disk. THe motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7VA. Also is that the right hard disk for that computer? I'm not very sure.

if you are using ntfs file system win2k or xp you should be ok but i think it would be way to big for fat32 win 95 98 me i would suggest leaving the thread open until the morning and some one should be able to verify for you

As above, also it seems a high price! the same drive at dabs. is £149.00 a saving of £100.00 unless I've made a mistake in the model numbers.

The drive your link leads to is also only a 2MB cache, 8MB will be better. j.

At max, for a decent 200Gb 7200RPM HDD pay £155
