  1. My Box config

    AMD athlon 64bit 2800+

    ASUS K8-VX Mother board

    want to upgrade to 500 gigs or if possible to 1tb Sata HDD

    Problem is
    1) Mother board is old done almost 3 years
    2) I don't know what version of SATA will be supported


    Please advise

    Thanks in advance for your answers

    Regards

    It really is best to check the Manual or Motherboard specifications

    Here's an automatic button, if that helps :)

    Please press the GO button
