Question about IBM PC 300GL PC Desktop
It is PIII 667, 6574 W3G, S/N 5543R37
Id downgrade to about windows 2000 or 98 mate because xp doesnt like CPU's under 1ghz. Im guessing that your computer is a bit slow yes? with this specification running xp?
You will get such a more reliable and faster computer.
Id actually say you will be alright with a 10gb drive and possible 20gb but like i previously mentioned there is a 32gb limit for FAT32 drives which you will have if you do downgrade to windows 98 or 2000 as only xp supports the NTFS filesystem. So nothing bigger than that i suppose , although you could buy an IDE controller card which plugs into a spare PCI slot on your motherboard and offers more IDE ports and also supports something called 48bit LBA which allows for drive bigger than 120gb i think. My own HP system cannot have a driver bigger than 120gb as the main system drive but can have any size i want as the slave drive. I haev a 120gb as my main drive and a 320gb as my slave drive.

Is it IDE or SATA? Put the Hdd in your pc, on IDE, the wide ribbon cable is for data, it can only go in one way, and power is the molex connector. 4 power points, ussualy 4 wires. orange, black, red, black, yellow. can only go in one way. thats it. Make sure that if you are running cd/dvd roms and you have 2 hdd's, that the two hdds run on the same ribbon cable, and the cd roms on their own cable. also put the new hdd to slave. (you change it via jumper settings, ussualy printed on the hdd itself)
SATA is easier. you need two cables. sata power, and data. they can also only go in one way. google sata connectors if you don't know how they look. though, if i is a PIII board, i doubt it'll support SATA, so you'll need to buy an IDE hdd.
