Hi, I'm Mike, I see you are looking at the 500gb Samsung Evo.
Yea I plan on getting it soon but im sure if i have the right cable in my pc
Mike S.
What type of PC do you have?
i have an acer pc
its about 2 1/2 years old
Mike S.
Are you comfortable opening the machine?
yea i have before
i've upgraded the psu and gpu
Mike S.
At 2.5 years I am sure it has Sata cables.
the other thing im concerned about is the docking
Mounting*
Mike S.
are you replacing the current drive?
no adding a new one
Mike S.
if you have space you can easily do it with an adapter like this.
I actually use the same adapter as you are looking at now. Do you have an extra SATA cable to connect it with?
im not really that sure
I have two hard drives right now and if I really needed to I could take out the old one
Mike S.
If you are not running your OS on a SSD, I highly recommend it. It will change your life :>
thats what i'm kinda trying to do
do the mounting kits fit into any pc?
Mike S.
They are universal.
is running games on the same drive you have windows installed on bad?
Mike S.
Also, if you are out of space you can put your old drive in an external drive case.
No, it is not bad at all. Keep in mind Win10 will take up about 110 GB alone
how do you install windows after taking out the hard drive to put in a new one?
Mike S.
The drive I just put in the display comes with a digital download for a Cloning program called Acronis.
alright thanks for your help
