Hard Drive capacity upgrade question
I need some assistance. My 200Gb EIDE drive crashed on my HP Media Center m1160n Desktop PC. I'm looking to buy a higher capacity for growth either another EIDE but I really want to buy a SATA drive.
The motherboard I'm using is K8S-LA (Salmon) and it's specification said 2 SATA connectors (support 2 drives, 1 SATA 150 disk drive on each connector). By that being said, it means to me I need to buy 2 drives to get a total of 300Gb drive, but is this really true? Can I not buy 300GB or a 500 Gb drive and just connect it to one SATA connector?
I found a SATA drive at bestbuy in my area and it's on sale, but if the above is true, then I would need to find either 2 SATA 150gb each or try to find EIDE drive.
I'm not sure what I want to do yet, but I'm installing a version of Windows 7 and when time goes by, I probably start playing installing and testing.
