A Dell Optiplex GX520 crashed at work (and I got it before it was thrown out) and via "Disks" utility I saw the hard drive was bad. I wasn't sure if I wanted to try to get it going again (and the expense involved) since it's old but it's also 64 bit so I figured, What the hell. (And believe it or not the computer it will be replacing (my home computer) is even older, and only 2GB RAM and 32 bit processor). I plan on putting Xubuntu (Linux) OS on it.
I've looked around and have narrowed my choice to two hard drives, but first and foremost I would to know if they would both fit and work.
I'm leaning toward the 320 GB one because it's bigger, but any feedback as to which would be best would be appreciated. Thank you.
Sorry it took me a while to figure out I couldn't include an attachment. Here is photo of the old hard drive. Thanks.
