Hey Everyone

I have a g45t-am2 mother board running win 7 64 bit and would like to add a 3.0 TB hard drive.

How do I know if my MB will support a 2.3+ TB.

I'd say with the SouthBridge chipset being ICH10, YES. Same chipset as on my X58 motherboard, and Z68 motherboard.

But with the dated system, I'd say no.

So, most likely.
