Would anyone here be able to tell me what the proper model(s) are for the floppy drive and hard disks found in the AT&T 7300?

I am considering buying a system that is in pieces, and the pictures the seller is showing me of the floppy drive does not look right when compared to the pictures that I have seen of complete 7300 systems:

When it comes to the hard drive, I have absolutely no idea. Is it even close?

Also, the system I am acquiring is lacking the power supply, so any help I might get at sourcing or building one of those is greatly appreciated.

If anyone would like to review the motherboard for my potential purchase, that is how I found the seller...it's this one on eBay:

Thanks everyone!

Hard drive looks like a Quantum Big Foot, an IDE drive manufactured about 10 years after the 7300. I doubt it will work with the 7300.

The floppy drive in the 7300 was a half height DSDD 5.25" drive. Any drive of the same type would work. It just depends whether you prefer the beige faceplate to match the case or ATT's decision to use a black faceplate that stands out.
