Default Can I use this hard drive with my pc?

I don't know if this is in the wrong part of the forums sorry if it is. Well I currently have this hard drive: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...sterid=465796/ and I was wondering if I could replace it with this one: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=115413

And my PC is a Compaq Presario, System Model 5365EA 470022-837 .

No, Unless your motherboard has SATA Ports, which I doubt.

Any EIDE, IDE or PATA or ATA.
