    Correct. We need to know the motherboard so that we can determine if it supports EIDE or SATA or both.

    Look at the "specs" of your mobe. This will inform you of what Hardisks are compatible. Then but the HDdrive that will work for you. If you read: this should be quite simple. Take a chance and use your judgement. You'll figure it out.
