He guys :)
I want to add another hdd to my pc
My system is: dell Precision Tower ‏ 5810
and i brought it as a one whole unit ( and not every commpenent alone)

The size of the hdd i want to add is 10 terabyte (for edit movies)

So my question is- am i allowed to do so? Or perhaps there is a limited size for hhd on my system?
I ask becuse i cant find that info on dell's website...

As long as you have power and a free SATA port, (your mobo has 6 SATA III ports, 4 regular & 2 ODD SATA drives. ODD is Optical Disk Drive) you can install a HDD. (Or SSD) No limit on size. I meant on total combined. (See below) :) Depending on the model, you can also have a PCIe SSD, tho those are more expensive. (See below)

Tech Specs for your motherboard.
