Hard Drive Upgrade

By dmiles ·
I would like to get input on upgrading a P4 system with a bigger hard drive,give me input on what your thoughts are to adding a 250GB,SATA to co-exist with 160GB IDE HD

Current drive is Maxtor,should the new drive be of another brand?

In the setup ,what are the Pro's and Con's of the configuration to SATA and IDE

Thanks In Advance

Shouldn't be a problem

It really shouldn't be a problem to mix SATA and IDE drives as long as your BIOS settings are correctly set to determine which is your boot drive. It really doesn't matter what brand the drive is and you don't need to have a different brand from your old drive.
