I agree, take a Seagate 500 GB 7200 RPM drive for laptops. The standards for the connections are same. So that would not be a problem. Make sure its for laptop and not the desktop one.

Yes, either of these drives will work. The cache is not all that important it is just where data is stored temporarily in case you have to access it again soon after a file is written to the hard drive. The best thing you could do in this case is see if your motherboard has a sata connection which I would assume it does and buy a sata hard drive. It will be much faster than either of those drives, just make sure you also get a sata power adapter if your power supply doesn't already have one and a sata cable.

Sata support?


the easiest way to know this is opening up the computer with a philips screwdriver and verifying if you can see S-ATA ports on the system board. They look like the red and black connectors on the following picture: http://www.pcper.com/images/reviews/98/board_sata.jpg

if you can see those connectors, your system supports it. in that case, you just have to connect the disk (don't forget to connect a power connector as well, these connectors are mostly black)
