I am more so a software nerd than hardware nerd, so I appologize for posting such a stupid question.

I have an emachines t6520, and I can't tell if http://www.newegg.co...=OTC-pr1c3watch is compatible with my computer. I am currently away from my computer. My computer specs: http://reviews.cnet....7-31466280.html

You should have no problems hooking up this storage system to your e-machines. You will probably have to use the USB connections unless you buy a E-Sata card for the computer. You will only be able to get USB 1.5 speed as most e-sata cards that are 3.0 USB speed are PCI-E card type. It does not appear that your motherboard has any 1X PCI-E slots.

The only problem i have is that i find USB2.0 extremely slow when transferring many files at once.

That enclosure comes with an eSATA card, no need to buy another one. But you will have to buy hard drives for it.

Thank you. I've looked at my choices, and have decided that the best choice is to buy someting more along the lines of http://www.newegg.co...=OTC-pr1c3watch, since it actually comes with the hard drives (1tb total), and is only a little bit more expensive.
