Default Re: Hard drive from newegg!

Pricing of hard drives is mostly based on a few things, obviously one is the technology built in, the hard drive capacity, the physical size of the drive, the speed it reads and writes at, as well as the reliability of the drive. but 67.00 for a 250GB drive isn't a bad price.

I found this drive

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

what do you guys think of it? is it better then the seagate? same compacity slightly cheaper..

actually.. am i looking for the wrong drives? because my hardrives looks a little differnt in the back i think, it uses the ribbon coreds that seem longer then in the picture.. or is it just because it's a picture?

Are you only looking at 250g's? For the same price get 320g. Why not? And you better hurry and order or else you might not get it shipped today and at your home by friday.

MSI Computer Corp. - Product

This is my exact mobo I'm almost 90% sure hehe looks exactly the same.. what cords would i have to buy with the hd to hook it up as im pretty sure they don't go with the ribbon cables anymore? as my HD's run off the same ribbon cable my CD drives go off of.

If you read reviews for the majority of the hd's on newegg, they will have very good one's. The review doesn't guarantee a good drive. You can still get a lemon.
Anyways, don't base your purchase soley on the review. I'm pretty sure any drive you buy will be fine.
Ribbon cord? you mean ide. SATA is different. good luck

yes, you do have sata. good! yep, just get one of them red sata cables and you're ready.
do you have a floppy disc with the sata drivers? if so, you will need a floppy drive to install them
