raptor

I was auditing a few systems and came across this disconnected drive in a system. I asked around and they replaced it thinking it was the issue... Well, I have it now.

Worth making it my boot drive? Seems like it would be sufficiant for just my programs and games..

Its the 36g 10000rpm 150mb SATA oned

Yeah, run it as a OS drive. It will be much faster. Naturally, being a 10000 rpm drive.
