I recently got a 2nd hand PC off of a friend and wanted to upgrade the hard drive, upon looking at the PC specifications on the Dell website (see link below) it says that the maximum it can handle is two 320GB drives.

My question is, is this correct and I can only upgrade with a 320GB hard drive? Would the PC just not handle it if I put in a 500GB? Anything I can do to make it be upgradable to 500GB?

Right now there is one 250GB drive in there and a spare bay.

(I wouldn't have gone for a Dell, but it was so cheap I decided why not)

No, that is not correct. I have a similar Dell desktop (E520, it comes with Intel CPU instead of AMD).

You can put a maximum of 2 SATA hard drives (3.5") and the size does not matter.
