Question Who can help me about SCSI HDDs?

Hey everyone, i just finished buying a hard drive off of ebay which should be arriving soon. The thing is i never noticed it was a SCSI, i have no experience with this type.

eBay.ca: Fujitsu 147GB 10K SCSI HARDDRIVE MAT3147NC U320 80 PIN (item 130160816590 end time 07-Oct-07 01:56:39 EDT)

Which kind of controller would i need to get? Can somebody recommend me one thats cheap and will work? Thanks

SCSI is not cheap, it is extremely high speed and you got an incredible deal there you will probably need a add in pci controller card like:

Newegg.com - ACARD AEC-6712UW PCI SCSI Ultra Wide SCSI-3 Adapter - Retail

to connect it to your system

Wow, that was a very good deal. SCSI are normally server only HDDs, but yeh with a controller it should be great!
