Default Need help finding this hard drive.

Hey guys I am trying to find this hard drive to replace the one currently in this desktop so I can sell it to my grandparents.

the mod # is WDC WD400EB-11JEF0

i found this one on newegg but its a we400BB not EB so not sure if it will work.

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar WD400BB 40GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

I googled it and it came up with several places that have refurbished models but I would prefer to buy a new one.

Thanks

Good luck finding a 40 gig. might as well grab this one:
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST380215A 80GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

It's less than $40. But for $44 you could get a 160GB. Just because a computer came with a 40GB doesn't mean that is all it can use.

Any 3.5" hard drive will fit in it. The newer drives are a little thinner than the older ones, but will still fit just fine.
