Question about Hard Drives
Now I have 40GB of Hard disk.But I want to increase the storage capacity.But I have Pentium4 motherboard taken in year 2001. Can I Use SATA hard disk?
If not what are other solutions? I dont know anymore about my motherboard instead it is Pentium4 so I am telling about my RAM.
My RAM Details:
512MB DDR PC266 CL2.5
You can use SATA hard disk.
you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.
My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.
Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.
Your RAM is ok too.
Hope my info helps you.

Depends on what you are using the hard drive for. For example if this hard drive is going to be used for multimedia then I would recommend a hard drive around 120Gb to 1TB, but if it's for a small office with MS Windows XP installed it should be just enough to host the operating system and a limited amount of programs, hope this help, best of luck

The hard drive is the component of the computer where data is stored. Each drive contains one or more platters or disks where data is stored on the magnetic surfaces. The amount of data that can be recorded on a given surface depends very much on the strength of the magnetic field generated by the surface layer.
Platinum enhanced magnetic alloy allows data to be stored at much higher densities.
Back in 1957 when IBM first introduced the hard disk, storing just 5 megabytes of data require fify disks, each measuring 24 inches in diameter. Sixty years later, a much smaller 3.5 inch disk drive is capable of storing over 500 gigabytes of data. An important process to achieving this remarkable increase in storage capacity is by adding platinum to the cobalt alloy to enhance its magnetic properties, allowing data to be stored at higher densities.
With so much digital content being created (at higher and higher definitions) and then shared online by millions of people over high speed broadband internet, the strong demand for higher capacity disk drives has resulted in more platinum being used in the manufacture of hard disks to enhance their storage capacity. The proportion of platinum in the magnetic alloy has gone up from less than 10 percent in 2002 to 35 percent in 2007.
