Hi guys, I want to purchase a new hard disk for my desktop computer, which will be internal. Now, I'm not sure how the whole SATA/ATA thing works... That's the one area I never really researched very much. My question is, how can I tell what type of hard disk I have now, and what kind of hard disk I will need to buy? I see options of an ATA, an ATA/100, SATA, SATA-150, or SATA-300. Would simply going into the BIOS tell me what I have now? Anything you think I should know before installing a new HD?
EDIT: Alright, I went into EVEREST, and looked under the Storage Drives, and all I see is a dropdown/expand box for ATA. I don't know about ATA/100, if that will show or not. All help is appreciated!
Also, the hard disk down here: (click here)
is VERY similar to what I have now.
