I was digging around in my parts bin and I came across a pair of old Seagate Barracuda 500gb units. They're matched, each one is 7200rpm, probably SATA-2.
I have no idea what the specs are for the TB drive that came stock with the box (HP pavilion P-6777 c-b.) I'm just guessing here, but I figure it's minimum SATA-2/5400rpm. What the specs, the thing is slow.
I've installed on of the 500's and it seems to be working well. So my question, per the title, is how would you configure these two drives? I'm thinking that I should do a fresh install on the 500 and then use the TB drive for mass storage.
Sub-question - I'm considering installing the 2nd 500, but my stock PSU is giving me pause. Its a 250 watt unit and don't want to overload it. I don't have an outrageous video card (GT 8800) but still, I think it could be risk.
