yeah so i thought i might popa question about wich of these to use for WIndwos Vista/7/XP

so it is these two
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD7500AAKS
Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS

wich shall i buy for OS purpose the bigger less expensive or the more expensive raptor?

the raptor is about 700SEK (Swedish currency) to the less expensive 750gb black

right now i use my 1TB for os and backup so i thougt a separate disk is better

I know MikeC prefers to have his OS installed on a separate disk, usually a Raptor or Velociraptor; he'll install the games on a second HDD.

hehehhehe i agree it is funny :)


i have a question though this time about the two different WD Bllack 1TB disks, what is the difference between the black and RE3 black other than the price wich is a huge difference,so what differs them or is the RE3 some specila server disk of some kind?

I am getting me a black 1TB 1001FALS and getting rid of my 2 250gb samsungs that has served me well for 3years i think so it is retirment time.
