Question Hard Drive Question

Is this a good harddrive for the price? I see it says parallel ATA... does my ASUS P5N-D have that kind of cable slot? Is it the same as Serial ATA? I want to replace my 160gb IDE HDD. Thanks!

Its the old ribbon cable, its an ok price, but you can find SATA 2 drives for near the same.

no, but the store is 5min from my house so I would just go pick it up
*EDIT* Just called, they have the same one, but different model for $90. Are there any other similar ones for less you can recommend me? thanks!
