ATA/133 HDD on Dimension 8200 with ATA/100 controller

Discussion in 'Dell' started by ..:: tom parle ::.., Jun 25, 2004.

  1. Can I buy a 120GB ATA/133 HDD for my Dell Dimension 8200 desktop, which
    currently only has an ATA/100 motherboard/controller (Intel 850
    motherboard)??

    Will it just run as an ATA/100 disk, or will I encounter problems??

    Thanks,

    Tom

    It will work fine. The drive is backwards compatible.
