Anyway, for the original poster, any IDE drive will do, you may find that your board can actually work hard drives bigger than 137Gb, though I'm not suggesting you buy a 300Gb one just to test this theory.
If you can borrow a 160Gb IDE drive from a friend and hang it off your computer, then if your computer can see 160Gb, it'll have no issues with 300Gb as the next limit after 137Gb is... in theory 2048Gb. But as that's at least four years away from even being approached, its nothing to worry about. Yet.

Neil, I posted on the Dell website about the same topic but didnt get the answer I was lookin for except that if I want to run anything larger than a 120Gb I need to re-flash my BIOS to A09.
But thanx, youve answered my question I think I will get that Seagate HD as its relatively cheap.
