Looking into adding a hard drive to my system. It is a Gateway LX6810-01 media center with a spot for 2 removable hard-drives. Slide a front panel down and there are 2 slide-out trays that hold the hard drive. My problem is I'm a bit confused as to hard-drive sizing. I see 3.5", 5 1/4", and sometimes 2.5". Also, the heights have me a bit confused. I see different heights listed which I'm confused on also. I know that the speed it spins makes a difference also, but will I see a BIG performance difference with the faster traveling drives? One last question, will the different speeds, sizes, etc., be compatable with my current hard-drive? It's a 640GB. Anyone willing to give a small tutorial on this I would greatly appreciated it. TIA, Don Jr.
