Great day peoples
I am looking at getting a hd off trade me. My hard drive I have now is a seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ... 40 gig.. The one I'm looking at is a seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ...160gig. Question does the one I bye have to be 7200.7 or will it not matter if its 7200.9?? Is there any other thing I have to check for when buying one? Many thanks

I would get a new one from somewhere like Ascent or computerlounge as then they will have the warranty and HDD's can be quite cheap these days see links

sata 250Gb (http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=354237)

IDE 160Gb (http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=377660)
