I have a WD Raptor X 150GB hard drive but I needed more storage so purchased a WD 6401AALS Black. I'm going to install Vista 64bit but am torn on which drive I should install it in. Should I install it on the Raptor and use the WD Black for storage or vice versa? Which drive is faster?

Overall, the Raptor should feel a bit faster, though the difference won't be massive.

actually, the raptor drive is much better and responsive than the other WD. Anyways, you can't use 150Gb for storage, its too little!! Keep the raptor clean (only windows and software) and put all your files on the big drive. That should keep your system in good shape.
