I am upgrading my old 160 GB HDD with a 1 TB HDD.
But i dont know wether newer HDD's are compatible with my motherboard.
I have a Gigabyte g31 series mobo (g31-s2l) which supports the following storage interface:
1 x IDE connector supporting ATA-100/66/33 and up to 2 IDE devices
4 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors supporting up to 4 SATA 3Gb/s devices
