Hello Guys,

New to the forum.

I have a Gateway 5200XL desktop which has just had hard drive failure. I've been out of the loop for a while, and was wondering if someone could tell me if the hard drive I have my eye on:

Western Digital Caviar Black
WD7502AAEX 750GB 7200 RPM
64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

Would be compatible with the motherboard in my machine which is an:

Intel 915G




I've done some research, and it seems that older motherboard only supports up to SATA 1.5 , but will this new drive not work at all if I connect it? I can't seem to find any of the older SATA drives I'm sure because technology has long since passed them by. Wanting to make sure I'll get some type of usage out of the new drive if I buy it.

Thank you.

:smile:
