In case you are interested to know, depending on the northbridge chipset on your motherboard, the mappable address space is usually 4Gig.
Usually 2 chipsets on motherboards, NB and SB. The NB (North Bridge) is the one that’s connected to your CPU(s) and memory BUS.
Anyway, I have 3 hard disk’s installed, IDE drives, and the 4th IDE device is my DVD drive, thus I do not gave places left on the IDE cables to connect drives anymore. Total of 420 Gig, and storage is always welcome, mostly to have some place to do important backups to, since drives are not guaranteed for long anymore.
Bottom line, take the disk.
