Howdy pecker115,
I have 2 seagate 500gig sata drives. If u have sata capable motherboard just plug it straight in and away you go, if your motherboard is not sata ready you can get a sata card for pci slot
As for customer support haven't needed so can't advise there.

(If u want to use a sata drive as main h/drive (only) drive you will have to change settings in your bios)(also you can use in tandem with ide h/drives you will have to change settings in bios)

these right here are about the best on the market and priced nicely i have 1 of each and love them. the 1tb is only $20 more than the 500gb so its a better deal.
