Would a 2TB Internal HDD (namely Western Digital WD WD20EARX) be detected & work properly by my 6 yrs old ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Motherboard?
** ASUS A8N-SLI Premium >> http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_939/A8NSLI_Premium/
I’m on Win7 32 Ultimate for the last 2-3 years & No HDD of any brand has given me any trouble in detection or in the working! The Maximum size i have used in my system is a 1.5TB Western Digital Internal WD15EARS Green HDD that works perfectly on my system.
I currently need to buy a 2TB disk Green WD20EARX HDD,but am bit confused on the purchase due to certain issues i have read on some tech forums about compatability of these newer HDD on older systems like mine.(I’m NOT absoluelly sure & also a 1.5tb wd15EARS hdd works perfectly in my system as i said b4,but … i’m still doubtful if a 2tb would similarly work fine)
So what do u guys advice me here ,would the 2tb drive as mentioned above fit into my system?,…i don’t want to regret the purchase coz of any incompatibilities arising post purchase!
/// My System specs :
CPU is AMD Athlon 64 3500 @ 2200 MHz
GPU is NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS (256 MB)
& RAM - 2GB (1+1)of system PC3200DDR400 Ram
Mobo BIOS is ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1303 from 08/10/06
& My PSU is Corsair VX550W,…which i think more than suffices for my old system ! ///
Plz Help me to make proper purchase decision ASAP as i need to purchase the hdd urgently !
