New HDD [::Brand problem::]


Graphic Designer
I've decided to buy a new HDD but not almost decided on the brand , this is the list I thought I should choose :

1. IMB
2. Maxtor
3. Seagate

Capacity : 60 - - - 80 GB 7200 rpm . My mobo : ECS - K7S5A2 and don't remember ATA represents .. 100,133 .. [?] will my mobo support the latest tech [?] .

Major thanks , Cosmin ;)
Your motherboard supports upto UltraATA/100, so you should be fine.

I'm drawn towards Seagate because of my experience with them ... very reliable drives, and quiet too. :)


This Board supports ATA 100 which isnt the lastest..but a pci card for a ATA Controller..that supports Raid/SATA will make it the lastest...and as for HDD...My Choice is Maxtor...I run 4 Maxtors ATA 133@7200 with my Computer
If you buy a ATA 133 drive it will still work with your motherboard as its backwards compatable, i am currently using IBM hard drives and they work fine.


Seagate...does not even come close to being quiet when compared to the Fluid Drives of the Maxtor Diamond Max 8 or 9 Series Drives.......but then HDD's are like Firewalls and AntiVirus Softwares.....its all Personal Choices and what makes you happy :cool:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
