Yes... you should be using the WD drive for your primary drive, as it is the faster drive.

Thanks for the fast reply. That's what I expected.

Only thing I noticed the maxtor one being better is that it has faster access times? :S

You are only talking a 1ms or less difference, which isn't a big deal. It isn't like you are going from 16ms to 0.1ms when comparing a HDD to a SSD.
