Asus A7N8X-deluxe needs new hard drive

By 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?

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.
