Hello. I am interested in buying another HDD to go along with my current one. I am quite a noob when it comes to hdd and I never understood how pairing them works and all that stuff. Right now I got:
Western Digital (WDWD5000AAKS), 500 GB, 7200 rpm, 16 Mb, random acces time 8.9 ms, SATA 2, transfer rate :300 MB/s. It works good enaugh and I got it for like... 60$ 2 years ago. I right now am interested in a http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?name=st2000DM001-barracuda-7200-14-sata-6gb/s-2tb-hd&vgnextoid=ba11e63bb94f2310VgnVCM1000001a48090aRCRD&vgnextch
I am looking for any suggestions to which way to pair them, other choices, how will work together, on which one should I keep my system files etc. The price is about 150$. I am from romania and to me it looks like a good deal.
Thanks for the time taken.
Also, how will my psu do with my current configuration ?
i would clone the current drive to the new one useing some software from acronis then use the old drive as maybe a back up or a spare drive
i would also go with a Western Digital Caviar Green 2 TB WD20EARX model (for sata 6)
Quite good...nothing to say
From what I've searched on google, it seems the WD is slower than the Segate, but there are fewer people with problems... will definitley consider it.
Samsung SpinPoint F3 is a good choice.
