I'm considering purchasing a Maxtor 40GB UDMA133 harddrive to increase my computer's capacity. I currently have a Maxtor 6.4GB harddrive. My main concern is if the hardrive will work with my motherboard (Asus A7V266E). I read in the manual that it (the HD) supports UDMA 33/66/or 100. I'm curious if this new maxtor would still work on it though....
true enough, they do command a premium price...
but you never know when you will need capacity.
the more you have the more you use LOL.
well in the 40Gb range the drive i cant reccomend IBM cauz of my dead drive, so i reccomend the Maxtor D740X. try to find one with the 'fluid bearings' as it will be quieter than the normal ballbrearing one.
in the product code the ballbearing version has a "J" the fluid bearing has a "L".
its a good drive with fast seeks and a decent transfer rate.

I was also looking at the Seagate Barracuda ATA III, and I'm considering it. I'm now trying to decide which one to purchase, either the Seagate Barracuda ATA III or the MAXTOR:6L040J/L (I'm not positive what the model name is). Comments?
I have 2 d740x's on a raid 0 (considering a third cause 80gb ain't enough, and $72 from newegg is dirt cheap) and they have never failed me and perform incredibly. My freinds too have D740x's and love em. Go with that drive, you'll be happy with it.
My frog asked me for a straw...dunno what happened his ass all over the place
The problem is that I'm also going to add 256MB DDR Ram to my system, and newegg doesn't have the "exact" type/brand that I previously purchased. I am using one Micron 256MB DDR PC2100 266Mhz, 184Pins, Unbuffered in my system right now. Newegg has CRUCIAL MICRON 256MB 32x64 PC 2100 DDR RAM, and I'm not sure if that is the same exact stuff or not....
