Asus A7N8X-deluxe needs new hard drive

dapnac3
I have an asus a7n8x that still runs well but the hard drive is about to die. I know there is a sata connection on this mb but I am not sure which sata type hd to get. I'd guess sata 1 will work but what about the sata 2 or sata 3 types?

All three are hardware compatible, but if the mobo does SATA1, the extra speed of a SATA2 or 3 won't happen, of course.

Speed difference doesn't matter. Sata is still faster than pata and it's cheaper. I'm not able to afford a new build right now.

Any current SATA Drive should suit your needs.

Remember you need a Power Connection as well as a Data lead and the new SATA Power Connections are different to PATA.

Ok...I guess I'll have to go to a brick and motor store to look at things before I order anything. Thanks for the heads up.
