what are the prerequisites that i have to check before i get the HDD.

Shouldnt be any, as long as you have enough sata ports and sata power connectors, it should just be plug and play.

I would add...since you don't provide any info about the system/motherboard...the only possible hiccup of any sort I can imagine might be the lack of support for SATA II drives by your system.

Not an obstacle per se, but something that users with older systems/boards should be aware of before purchasing newer SATA drives.
