I want to add a hdd to my E510 dual core. The reason is to partion it for Photoshop scratch, and use the rest for storage. I'll have to stash it into a bay below the CD drive because Dell doesn't believe in wasting space in their boxes.
So I'm thinking of either a Seagate Sata or ATA drive. If I connect an Ata to the CD drive/slave I think it'll work.
But I'd like to go Sata for the speed/performance.
My question is, can I add a Sata without also adding a controller card? My pci slots are pretty much spoken for.
