My System Specs


Ditto on the WD Green. I have a couple of WD greens in my system, and while they're excellent storage drives, they are SLOOWWWWWW. It sometimes takes a few seconds (as long as 15 sometimes) to populate my media folders when my computer has been sitting idle for a while. As a boot drive, you'll completely kill your system's performance, IMO.
