Default getting a new hard drive

When I hook it up is there anything special I need to do?

Will this HDD work with this mobo?


I read some of the reviews, and one guy said windows won't recognize a drive over 137GB? Is this true? DO I have to get any special PSU connecter to connect to this, or will a molex one work? ANother guy said you needed a floppy drive to install this. I don't have a floppy drive. Will this one not work for me then?

Or could anybody point me towards one that will work with that mobo that is at least 120 GB

okay man...that drive will work fine with that MOBO...and as for the power you'll need a 4pin molex to SATA should come with the drive...and for the 137gb barrier...check out my Guide here
