Can I erase the hard drive with a bulk electromagnetic eraser?

Q: I’m going to do a full recovery with hard drive format. I have the CDs. Can I bulk the hard drive with a bulk electromagnetic eraser to be sure ALL of my sensitive files are gone before selling my computer?

    I always suggest Boot & Nuke for doing a complete system wipe.
