Can I use my SAMSUNG 1TB HD103UJ on the new PC build that only had an SSD?
If I could I would like to know how well would it work because its an old drive..
Im on budget so Im looking to squeeze as much as possible from old pc.

also you gotta remember what was your HDD installed/running on before, IDE or AHCI, but if the drive is only a secondary/no os installed in it, you probably be fine, plug n play thats all. Sometimes those AHCI or IDE mode made drive fail to boot to windows (If drive previously use IDE and installed on IDE (MBR), dont change it onto AHCI cause it wont boot, unless you want to re install and change your drive into AHCI and use GPT (Best on supporting most modern stuffs cause it's Compatible with UEFI bios rather than Legacy bios).
