Hi guys, I am thinking of buying WD Caviar Black 1TB. My current HDD is so slow and very low on space. Pardon me, I am VERY noobish regarding HDD. What I want to ask is, is it okay to let my old HDD contain the OS? In order to play games more efficiently, do I have to set the WD Caviar Black as the one containing the operating system? Or do I only need to put my games files on the WD Caviar Black in order to play that particular game efficiently? Thanks in advance.

It really does not matter where your games are. Every program will load on the speed of the drive they are installed on. If your new drive is faster there might be a slight benefit to install OS and programs on it but I think in most cases you will not notice any difference.

Yes, that's what I meant. Oh well, perhaps I should consider formatting too. Thanks man. :)
