I've got a Pavillion A320N with a 120GB Ultra DMA hard drive that is squealing and needs to be replaced. I'm trying to find a compatible replacement drive. It running an ASUS A7N8X-LA motherboard with an AMD Athalon XP 333 processor. Not sure if any EIDE drive will work or if there are certain things I need to avoid. Is there a HD size limit for my system. I'm pretty sure I'm not SATA compatible. Any help is appreciated.

I believe that the EIDE drive will work in your system. However, you will not benefit from the enhancements. If it were me, I would stick with a 120GB hard drive. You know that it will work. This is always the safest bet.
No, you do not have SATA capability.
