Hello there.

Your motherboard has 4x Serial ATA connections , as you are using 1 already this means you can add a total of 3 SATA new HDD to the system. Size doesn't really matter but thesedays you should be able to get good value for money on the 200-500GB version of the sata drives.

If you have windows installed already on the existing 40GB, then you can add the new HDD alongside the existing, then in Windows set up the new HDD as a new drive letter, giving you all the free space to save your files on.

Hope this helps.

Installing new harddrive


So you want to Install a new Hard Drive?

Im assuming your New Hard drive is a SATA connector. Reply if it isn't.

Open up your computer case and look for the current hard drive. place the new hard drive in a free spot and screw it in. then plug in the SATA power cable and then the SATA interface cable and the other end on the motherboard by locating a free socket usually orange (Gigabyte Motherboard).

If you do not have a SATA power connector, you can get a Molex to SATA converter or you should buy a new power supply that has SATA power connectors.
