I currently have this mobo Asus Nforce4 P5NSLI. now i want to purchase this hdd http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143288
i'm aware it's sata II interface and I think it's compliant with my mobo let me know otherwise please.
my question is should i just add the samsung hdd and just format it quick on windows like you do with your partitions on your hdd or should i re-install windows on the new samsung drive.
I would prefer to have the maxtor hdd as it is and use the samsung as the back up for movies/games/music. but if there is a huge performance increase from using the samsung as the main (C drive let me know please.
Also I heard about setting up raid 0 but i think that requires me to format which i have done recently if you can give me more info on that that would be great
Thanks for reading my thread I look forward to hearing from you.
