    Default How this sound?

    I have a 2.5 hdd that took out of a external hdd case with a broke USB port. I was thinking about using as storage drive next to a 60gb ssd which would be used for the OS and apps. Reason I was thinking about doing this is so I can take the money I was gonna use on a 500gb or 1tb drive and use it on something else. How that sound to you guys?

    What about using OCZ Agility 3? The 50gb adrenaline is $99 compared to a 60gb agility which $69 on newegg.

    Your missing the point, it's the software that comes with the drive, it works together with the SSD to speed up your 1TB drive to speeds a hell of a lot faster than a stock 1TB drive. I can tell you didn't read the review lol

    Well if you want one TB internal just take the HDD out of the other one, if they are both 2.5" drives you can put the 320GB in the case from the 1TB.

    I read some of the review and got the part about the speed boost. But honestly anything I use in this builded im doing is a performance boost compare to my old ass PC lol. Remember this is my 1st build and Im not as hardcore as you guys(maybe in do time). So Im looking to save where I can and leave room to upgrade when I can. So basically I can get away with using a ssd and 2.5 hdd until I get a 3.5 hdd?

    It is called caching. The software caches the hot files to the SSD for quicker performance.

    Take the 1TB external out of its case, use it as an internal for your OS and apps, and get the crucial adrenaline as Stan suggested. You can use the 320GB as a hot swap or back up.
