Yes & no - While the OS can support the larger sized HD. Your system has an older SATA port, SATA I (1.5 Gb/s) most of the larger HD's have a much faster SATA speed SATA III (6.0 Gb/s). So you'll encounter problems if you're not careful. I would recommend you go with a SSHD unit vs a straight HD here as they often can support the older systems. As an example Seagate's SSHD worldwould work here [http://www.seagate.com/products/desktop-storage/desktop-internal-drives/|Seagate desktop SSHD's].
