Question suggestion on buying a HardDrive...

Hi, well, I have an old computer, about 5 years old, and the hard drive damaged. Now I'm looking for a new one, but the one who tried to repair my computer told me the board would only recognize 80 Gb or less, and I want to know what hard drive would be good, like brand....

Thanks

If it is 5 years old then i'm guessing ti probaly doesn't have SATA. So here is an ide hard drive.

Seagate baracuda. I have a seagate baracuda but in 160 gigabytes. It sis perfect.
