You would need to buy a SCSI adapter card. Depending on that adapter card you wouldent get much of a speed boost so try to find a good one. They usually go in a PCI slot.

For one of those you don't need a U320 adapter. U160 will have plenty of bandwidth. You could even run 2 of those on a U160 adapter.

Also, most of the PCI-X SCSI adapters will fit in PCI slots but only run in 32-bit mode. So don't let the "PCI-X" scare you away from an adapter.

That 15K drive is now 3 years old and a generation behind. A Raptor and many of the latest 7200rpm drives will be just as fast for most desktop usage. Only when the going gets rough like a multiuser server or when the drive is heavily fragmented will the drive you've shown really have a performance advantage.

If you really want to spend some cake and get a fast SATA drive, get the new Raptor150. $300 on newegg or the wd website.
