I need to buy a Hard Drive and im basically clueless

I no longer have a Hard Drive for my Dell Dimension E520, and i'm looking to buy a new one.


That's the Hard Drive i'm looking at, it's supposed to be compatable with my computer. If I buy that Hard Drive do i need anything else to go along with it, such as a wire?

Also, will I have any problems playing games such as World of Warcraft?

Thanks for the help

  1. It will be fine if you have SATA. Make sure your old hard drive is a SATA drive. SATA uses a small thin red cable, IDE uses a wide ribbon like cable. If it is a fairly new computer it has SATA. And you can use your old cable.
    WOW isn't an issue. You may have slightly faster load times with a newer drive.
  2. Pardon the expression, but it sounds to me like you have decided to lose your hardware tinkering virginity :D


    This should help you, as it will give detailed instructions to help you along.
    You will not have any problems playing games like World of Warcraft.
    If you are adding a all you will need is the cable and a screw driver.

    If you need a hand, let me know.
