    Default the easier upgrade

    I would need to buy win 7 for an ssd upgrade
    I could buy a second 450gb raptor and have it setup in raid 0 for 100 dolllars less
    Question I have a 520 seasonic psu
    heres the power specs for raptor
    N12 VDC
    Read/Write 320 mA
    Idle 210 mA
    Standby 5 mA
    Sleep 5 mA
    5 VDC
    Read/Write 470 mA
    Idle 360 mA
    Standby 130 mA
    Sleep 120 mA
    Power Dissipation
    Read/Write 6.20 Watts
    Idle 4.30 Watts
    Standby 0.70 Watts
    Sleep 0.70 Watt

    We would need to know what else you have loading the PSU. GPU? Other HDDs? DVd drives ect. Adding a HDD in most cases will not add that much strain on your system unless you were already overloaded and milking the psu.

    I think you will be fine with another HDD. Are you OC you GPU or CPU?

    Buy the Plextor quick before the price goes up again. Why do you need to buy Win 7? Don't you have that as you os now?

    You can get an oem copy from the egg when you order the Plextor. You'll be glad you did. 7 is much better than xp.

    Naw man, I just know how much that SSD will make your system scream. It's such a huge difference. I was on the fence for a while, but I'm a true believer now.

    You should have jumped on one of the Sata III 240GB SSDs I had, I just sold the last one this week. For the same price you could have has a 240GB instead of a 128GB, and I could have given you a Win 7 key code and DVD
