Hello everyone! :)
I'm new to this site and this place seems the best place to ask for a friendly advice or so.
I'm having one problem. I'm planning on gettings a new HDD for my PC, and I've found some of them that are cheap and fits the capacity (500GB).
But the real problem is , I don't know if it will fit my PC. What I mean is, I don't know if my other PC parts will work nice with this new HDD.

The HDD is mostly for keeping all my non-uploaded videos (youtube) and games. I was thinking if they would effect my PC speed or so aswell.

I was looking at this one : Cheap one
its my countrys electronic store page.

I was told by my friend to try this one instead , but 1TB is way to big , since it incrases the price :/
More Expensive

I think you will need my PC info , so i'm going to share that too , hopefully that will add something to faster / accurate helping :)

Windows 7 Ultimate (64x)
Processor : AMD Phenom II X2 550()
Motherboard : ASRock K10N78FullHD-hSLI (chipset nVidia MCP78)
Memory : 8GB (Dual-Channel)
Graphics card : nVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT

If you need more details about something, ask me :)

My old HDD (current one i'm using) is SAMSUNG HD160JJ (160GB)

Please help me :/ I would buy the part immediately if I knew if its good.

The HDD at the first link is for a notebook type computer and so is only 2.5" http://www.varle.lt/#!/kietieji-diskai-hdd/vidiniai-diskai/hdd-sata25-500gb-7200rpm16mb-7k500-0a72335-hgst.html

Have you considered keeping the present HDD and fitting a back up HDD, you can also use an external USB type of HDD
