can i use my 500gb western digital hdd for a new pc im building? it says it has sata 3gb/s and need 5vdc: 0.55a power. the sata cable does connect to one of the pins on the hdd but i have not yet booted it up. could i use this as my primary hard drive? i do have 2 other pc hdds but they dont connect to the sata cables??
ya i can install windows from scratch but i do not need the hdd to fit somehwere i just put som escrews on top and its nice and snug in there and i will eventully get a desktop hdd but the rest of my hdd arent sata because they are sooo old like 5 yeears. i dont mind the slowness i can wait a little longer for boots and maps to load. im thinking about getting an 120 gig sdd later on
