Having problems with your HP Compaq dx2300 Microtower - RT950UTABA PC Desktop ?

I was wondering what DVDroms work with a hp micro towe. Mine didn't come with one and I was looking to buy one. It has a different cord then my other computers and I think its called a SATA? I don't know what ones work with the computer and I've been looking around on the web for a while. External drives are a bit to pricy for me at this time so its internal for me. If any could help I would be very greatful
