Windows 7: Two SSD in computer - compatibility

Two SSD in computer - compatibility


A question which to many may be obvious, but when you don't know you don't know !

Can an older ssd such as intel x25m work in the same computer as say an intel 330 ?.. ie: fitting the 330 as an additional drive.

I ask, because they have different controllers, and one is 25nm and the other 32nm.

It's something I am considering doing (but not necessarily those drives)

I am running a first generation OCZ Vertex EX along with my Intel 520 SSD right now.

The controllers on-board for the devices, regardless of what they are, will not conflict with one another nor your system
