Cressida, Arachne, eric93se, Andrei, thank you all for the replies mates!
wow, that Matsonic MS9007C, is a socket 423!
You’ll see a big performance boost with a modern HDD. @
Is this a good thing, what is a socket 423 exactly?
Also, you only have USB 1.1 onboard, so for using an external HD you’ll need a PCI card with USB 2.0 or FireWire. @
I have downloaded the BIOS, is there any chance to find out if this BIOS is a newer version than my old one?
And how can I install it? Is it possible that it can screw up something?
And yes the onboard USB is 1.1 which is pretty slow.
I was thinking the Hard disc to be Internal and to replace the old one, which is great in terms of performance (not a single malfunction in 6 years, “I will put it in a safe” lol ), and have just one internal HD.
And now remains the question what type, brand and how big?
What would be a nice choice?
What do you guys recommend?
