Advice on installing a 2nd hard disk drive please

  Never again 06:31 06 Jun 03

I have a 4 year old pc which has a 13gb c drive, which my kids have managed to fill up. Although I regularly defrag it,use disk clean up, uninstall infrequently used,unused programs, etc I think that it would be easier if I installed another drive and got the kids to use this for thier games, etc.

Is it very easy to install and how much am I likely to pay for a drive up to 40gb.

Very pleased with it. You may have to check if you're bios will support 40 gigs.
Current price is about £47+vat +post

I think that my original drive is ide.

Most of the ones that I see are EIDE - is that the same?

All the drives on sale seem to be EIDE but I only have an IDE drive and controller.

Will it fit?
