Question about Dell (S423) for Dimension 8100 (3F546) Motherboard
I WANT TO UP GRADE FROM A 60G H/D TO WHAT EVER THE MOTHERBOARD CAN HANDLE. CAN I GO TO A 400-500G BY ADDING A PCI CARD? ANY HELP YOU PASS ME IS GREAT. THANKS, CJ, NY
basically your system board has a PCI controller interfave and will only allow you a maximum of 100G hard drive. if you want to upgrade to SATA interface you need to purchase a SATA Adapter card that goes to one of the vacant PCI slot. this will then allow you to upgrade to 200G-300G hard drive. you also need to upgrade your power supply. SATA hard drives has different power connectors. if you are having problems finding these parts try to ask dell spare parts at 800-3573355 or 800-8228965.
hope this resolves your problem.
