I am looking to replace the HDD in an old Arrow Desktop with 512Mb RAM, and 80 Gb HDD with 2Gb RAM and 500Gb HDD for use as a second computer. Is this feasible?

To your post... Do you have the model number of the Arrow Desktop, so we can review to see if it 1) supports 2GB of RAM & 2)What RAM it takes? Along with that information, we'll be able to see if the PC handles SATA or IDE hard drives, which effects what we would recommend.

To your title... The Samsung Spinpoint F3 or Seagate 7200.12 are considered the fastest 500GB hard drives, along with the Western Digital Black.

Thank you, I have installed a WD Black 1TB HDD with 64 MB cache,together with 2GB of RAM. The PC performs eagerly with these changes!
