    New Mac Pro Quad 2.8 w/Seagate 500gb hard drive.
    I want to install an internal drive 1.5 times larger than the primary.
    Will this drive fit the connectors in the drive bay?

    Barracuda 7200.11 SATA 3Gb/s NCQ 750GB 16MB Cache

    CanadaRam sells the following for the Mac Pro (Jan. 2008) for $104.00. I got one about two months ago and it works great just let them know what model you have.

    500Gb Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500 GB internal 3.5 SATA-II NCQ Serial ATA 7200 rpm: 32 MB cache 7200 RPM SATA Internal HD ST3500320AS

    700GB not 500GB

    Thanks anyway John,
    I wanted the larger 700MB drive to fit in the bay for my TM backups.
    I assume the connectors will work on the link I provided, if not would someone speak out.
    Ready to pull the trigger,:D
    Thanks

    Sata

    Hi DeuceDeuce,
    I wasn't sure about the difference between esata and sata.
    Thanks for your input.
    Best,
    Arborist
