    It will be. The board probably has SATA if you just bought it and SATA works with every HDD.

    In all honesty though, do you mind if I ask why you would buy that HDD? They are highly over rated these days since SSDs came out and have pretty much made them a relic of the past.
  2. Well, basically i have a 2tb hard drive right now. i've heard reviews where it only lasts like a month and is highly unreliable. This drive is supposed to be super reliable
  3. Which HDD do you have? A WD Black is pretty reliable as are Seagate Barracudas. I had a pair of 120GB Seagates last 8+ years.

    That's the one i currently have
  5. I have actually seen a few issues from Toshiba more recently so I understand.

    Still that drive is priced very high. If you want reliable that still has decent performance get a WD Black 2TB or Seagate Barracuda 2TB. Seagate also has a few hybrid SSHDs that combine the performance of a SSD with the storage of a HDD:

    Almost half the price yet 2x the storage space and will out perform the Raptor by quite a bit.
