[qanda]This thread is about the Western Digital WD7501AALS Caviar Black Hard drive. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]First post so bare with.
My harddrive just went capuut. So I'm going to replace it and Well I was looking at getting the WD Caviar Black 1tb. Well the idea was to get this one and partition the drive to say 150 and just use that part for my OS and the rest for storage. I do alot of TV recording, ripping movies music, and downloading and watching anime and then delete the anime and tv (and I mean a lot of deleting)(i think that among a couple other reasons is why the drive gave me the old farewell) but the movies and music would stay and would watch anytime someone wanted to which is often. Is this a good idea or should i just go with a different setup.
I am capable of having more than one internal. So another setup was to use the 1 tb for storage and get like 150gb harddrive for the OS. I dont want an external since I already have enough wires back there and I do have the room inside the thing so i figure I might as well use it.
I'd like ideas cuz if I do that would I really need the caviar black since it is suppose to be a high end drive would the first setup make use of its power
the system is a vaio
P4 3.2 ghz
running four tuners
with two monitors
I dont't think you needed that but just to be thorough. It is my first post
