How to add a additional hard drive to a dell gx620

Answers :

You can't. There is no room and only one SATA port.
Make sure that the HD is compatible with the current system. Then ensure that the jumpers on the new drive are set such that they are not Master, but Slave. If you have both set to master, you will get nowhere fast.
\015\012Set it to slave, and you should be able to format it as a slave unit, then use it as a separate, additional drive.
