Hi
I'm trying to find a cheap solution to be able to connect:
Hard drive : SEAGATE - ST1200MM0088
to my desktop PC : Dell Tower 5810 with motherboard 0hhv7n.

Thanks

My reading of the specs indicates that your proposed drive is supported:
https://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/shared-content/data-sheets/en/Documents/Dell-Precision-Tower-5000-Series-5810-Spec-Sheet.pdf
There are two 3.5: bays available.
If both are now used, you need to cobble together some sort of a mount.
And possibly a sas adapter card.

A cheap solution would be to dump/sell the sas drive in favor of a conventional hdd or, better yet, a ssd.
Do not get enamored with the 10k spec, it is only marginally better than 7200 rpm.
Any 1tb ssd would be vastly faster and cost about $120.

Thanks guys for the answers.
Simple change from current drive to SSD is non an option. In the past I had MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i (turned on in AHCI - no raid), unfortunately one day it stopped working and right know I'm searching for CHEAP solution to be able to connect this driver(s) and copy data from it.
