    SATA is the type of connection it has to your mobo. If your mobo doesn't supply a SATA connection, you're forked!
    Try a Seagate though, apparently a lot of Maxtors and WD's are having some problems. Check out the Hardware>AMD forum section for more info. Right now, you might need an IDE HD if your mobo is about 2 years old or older.
    Why don't you make sure which interface you have (IDE, ata100, ata133, etc) and then choose a hard drive.

    If you're in the U.S. try Newegg .
