This has been on my mind, i have a few laptop hds that i would like to use as either external hard drives or internal hard drives as to hold data, what would all be needed in either of these?

I bought a couple adapters.

Now, with these is this enough to do what i am intending on doing, using it as the primary hard drive on a system?

Either external, internal does not matter, and if i need more cords to make it happen ill prob buy them i have a few laptop HDs, ones a 640gb freshly pulled from a parted out dv7-4xxx beats edition :sol:
