What is the form factor for my PC? Would this memory card work and can I keep my old HDD as a 2nd hard drive? Thanks!!

@MM95 , welcome to the forum.

 

Yes, the 2.5" SSD will work in your computer.  You will need to use an adapter for 2.5" to 3.5" drive bay: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Black-2-5-SSD-to-3-5-Bay-Hard-Drive-HDD-Mounting-Dock-Tray-Bracket-Adapte...

 

You can install it into one of the spare 3.5" drive bays.  You should check to see if there is a SATA power cable and SATA data cable available.  If not, you will need to buy them.  The current HDD can be used for storage once the SSD is running as your boot drive.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to help you make the transition: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-or-Laptop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/73048...

You are welcome, @MM95!

 

Yes, both items should be fine.  The SATA power cable will be connected to your power supply unit (PSU).  Good luck!
