Okay, my Dell Dimension 4400 is said not to support SATA, hence why i have none on my Motherboard.

so im not exactly sure if a Sata card with a VIA Chipset would work or not, would it?

Joe88 is right but I will say do not even consider that card you linked: it is a silicon image chipset which do not play well with several drive models (to the point you may well end up bricking the drive if it is a Hitachi).

As mentioned you can probably get a better deal if you are willing to venture online but "VIA VT6421 Chipset" is the magic word: go right ahead.

    @BigOnYa, why do people hate seasons 20 and 23 of south park?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't know. People hate and down vote everything nowdays. I see it especially on gamestores, like every game has a negative rating, even though they are good games.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    With south park, they speak the truth, whether people like it or not, then peeps get they're panties in a bunch.

    1st video- That's why I hate ordering stuff online, if I can just go pick it up myself nearby. Wal-Mart online did that to me years ago, sent wrong item, I went to Wal-Mart by me to return, but noo, I had to mail it back and wait.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    99% of the time ordering online I have had flawless experiences, only time something was messed up, I ordered a big TV from Amazon and it came smashed the box was literally like some one jumped up and down on it, didn't even open it, contacted Amazon sent them pictures, they made me open it and take more pictures, free label to return it and they sent another. So it was relatively painless. But still annoying.
