I currently have 1x 500Gb Seagate 7200.11 and 1x320Gb Seagate 7200.11. I use the 500Gb for my OS and Program files as well as my documents..This drive holds everything except for my page file, downloads and my videos which I store on the 320Gb drive. This week I have had 2 checkdisk prompt for the 320 Gb Drive and so I realized maybe its time for a new harddrive (both drives are from my old build anyway and are more than 2 years old) My plan is to get a samsung spinpoint f3 1 Tb..this should be more than enough for my needs anyway as my 820Gb total for the old drives never got used up and always had about 50% free space whew..what a long introduction but these are my questions 1. How much power do these drives consume? Coz my PSU is quite loaded with my current components and I dont want to add much stress to the PSU. 2. I plan to totally remove the 320Gb drive from my system (throw all my backups there and just unplug the Sata and power cable from it) 3. Is it wise if I buy 2x500Gb F3s and put them in RAID 0? then make the 500Gb drive as my backup? (So im keeping 3 drives..I will still ditch the 320Gb drive because of the bad sector/chkdsk annoyance) 4. Velociraptor 150Gb instead of the SPinpoint F3...Is it worth it? 5. No SSD recommendation pls I not now..haha maybe next year as its too expensive for me for now.. Can annyone on a RAID 0 setup please show me the "my computer" screenshot? I can't imagine how it works..in theory RAID 0 means having the 2 drives work as 1 right?, Can you still partition it?
