How do I put a Momentus XT into a desktop?

I recently bought a Momentus XT (500 gb) to put into my new desktop. What kind adapter or any other sort of device do I need to make it compatible with the 3.5 inch drive bay?
A link to a product, preferably at a brick and mortar store, would be nice.

You will need a 3.5 to 2.5 converter so it can fit in the drive bay, which you can find on any NewEgg site and you should be able to find it in some electronics/office supply stores.

Hard drives have moving parts so they need to be secured correctly, otherwise you risk the life of the drive itself.

Good luck!
