Wanting to install new sata drive


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have 2 slots available for hard drive in my pc and I want to install a second sata drive for storage. This is the dilemma....I only have 2 slots on my pc. See picture below (the blue one and the black one in the top right corner of the picture). The black one is connected to my dvd-rw drive and the blue one is connected to my main hard drive so I don't have a second blue slot to run another sata cable. Is there a cord that will allow me to use both hard drives at once or is there another way to do it?

Thanks for the help guys! Will get one of these asap.

Also look for one with two or more internal connectors so you have a bit more future proofing.

BTW, you decided on a graphics card?

I will look for those. As for the video card. I decided to get either the 9800 or the 9600. I went to get one last weekend, but somehow I came back with cds and dvd instead :} . I gonna order it online so I don't screw up lol.

Nice, the price difference (and performance difference once slightly overclocked) between the 9600 and 9800 s minimal so get whichever has the best bundle and/or heatsink/fan for the price.

On the topic of SATA drives, get a HDD as big as you can afford as the price difference between a 750GB drive and a 1TB drive for example is very low. I picked up a very fast and new SpinPoint F3 1TB drive for my shuttle for $30 less than the 640GB drive in my other PC was 10 months ago!
