quote Covert_kingJust as far as SATA II vs III goes, or is there some other factor? I made sure to get SATA III when we built the PC, and the SSD would be that as well.putting an ssd and a hard drive in raid wouldnt make a difference, you have to make sure your motherboard can support the speed of an ssd anyway,. i have 2 vertex 3 in raid 0 and had to change motherboards to be able to get the full speeds from the drives.
quote Iceguy2003Both are pretty new, so I would imagine the ports would support gigabit ethernet. I have no clue if any of my cables are though, it's been a long time since I've bought one of them. 1gbit is Cat6 right?If your laptop and PC support 1Gbit Ethernet, you can transfer pretty fast. I transferred around 250GB yesterday of all kinds of games and other files from my PC to a laptop and was transferring at up to 120mb/s, which is right around my max read speed anyways, using Ethernet and a cable to support 1Gbit speeds.
quote ashantiquaHow do you get rid of Windows on the old drive? I know you can just reformat it, but is there a way to do it without deleting the other files? Also assuming moving those files over to a third drive temporarily wasn't an option.if you install windows on any new HDD or SSD, yes you can access all the files from your old HDD after booting from the new drive. and yes, you can delete windows on the old drive to clear up space.
