It looks like that's a 6.5 GB drive. So what's wrong besides it being a little loud?

I have a pc that the hdd has been really loud for the past 4 or so years and it still runs great (for a 4 year old pc.)

What do you mean by it sounds like its hitting the sides? What is hitting the sides of what?

You can just google the model # to get all the specs you need. I agree its pretty small, but if you need some extra storage space it could work.
