Sorry I can't see the mb model number so you can you post it for me so I can look at the connections.

is using 2 cables like the one below,

Are you saying the lower picture in my last post?

Your friends opinion may be it is a crappy mb. Everyone has a specific brand they like so he may not be a fan of Asrock mb's. I have never had a problem out of them.

OK 250 to 320 gig for the OS or would you want smaller?
You want to stick to straight SATA or go to SATA SSD?

SSD is the new type of drive. Much faster and seem to be more reliable now.
OS is your Windows.

SATA if it is the lower picture you stated earlier.
SSD stands for Solid State Drive. Same connection just faster then standard SATA. :thumbsup:
IMHO I can't justify the price difference right now for me because I have to have a larger drive because of a triple boot setup I have. To replace my 500 gig it would cost me about $350 dollars right now.

Joshua, just a thought you might want to follow up on here.....these hard drives come with a guarantee period that sometimes can be several years. I just had a 2-year old 1TB Seagate fail on me, I called Seagate tech support, they took the serial # and sent me a postage-paid mailer box along with a brand new drive, all I did was put the old one in the box they sent, attached a print-out of the Seagate test log showing "FAIL" and drop it at the UPS store. I didn't know they had 5 year guarantee on that drive. Check it out. Also check any warranties that came with your computer, you may be surprised. Sometimes the retailer's warranty period runs out, but the component manufacturer has longer warranties on their products. Just a thought.
And don't forget to use that fan blowing in suggestion before you make any decisions. Never hurts to check everything out.
