"Used SAMSUNG HE103UJ 1TB SPINPOINT F1 RAID 7200RPM 32MB" will this work in my desktop

Im look to upgrade my drive, a 300gb with a SAMSUNG HE103UJ 1TB SPINPOINT F1 RAID 7200RPM 32MB SATA II
I have a A785GM-LE motherboard, AMD Phenom II X4 830, 4 gb memory. Running windows 7 pro 64. I dont understand what the ( F1 RAID) is, do I need to configure it in a raid array to make it work or can I just swap it for my old drive or add it as a second drive?
thanks CM

  1. It will likely work just fine but I am wondering why you picked this one? You can RAID just about any drive. I think they are just classifying this drive RAID because it has a 7-year warranty which data centers love. Other than the warranty and some other array features... I see nothing too special about it.

    You don't have to use as a RAID drive. You can use like any other SATA drive, in AHCI, IDE, or RAID mode. It will work just fine as either a primary or secondary drive.
