I decided I am going from dual boot to a single Vista boot because I prefer Vista over XP now and never boot up XP anymore.

To do this I need to format, repartition and reinstall so I figured while I do this I may as well go back to a 10k Raptor as my OS drive

I will have two of these as soon as I make the switch in both my pc's. They are identical and would be great for RAID

Western Digital(SE WD1600JS)
160gb
SATA
7200rpm

UNDER WARRANTY UNTIL 3/2010

$35 shipped each or $65 shipped for both

These will ship out the middle of next week, weather permitting

that was someone else, i have always liked vista and even defended it on here a few times. i wasnt ready to make the full switch, but i havent booted into XP in a month

i miss the speed of my raptors. in raid i could get that speed, but i use very small shuttle cases so i only have room for a single OS drive and a storage drive

thanks for the bumpage, go bears:)

He already has Vista. Maybe he should not compute until Windows 7 comes out?

umm ya dont really care about all that, vista works perfect for me as does IE

newegg sells the 160gb WD sata drives for $50 shipped so i figure $35 shipped each is a decent deal, make an offer i have no need for these drives after early next week

i also just checked warrany on one and it is under warranty until 3/3/2010

Anyhow, bump for a good price.

I did the same thing w/ dual boot. I haven't used XP in over 6 months.

I could never get Vista to work with my gaming PC and gave up on it. They never should have strayed from XP until 7 comes out. Waste of money for alot of people and especially business's. It really pisses me off that they are going to be dropping XP soon.

Regardless, why don't you sell me the two raptors so I can the have 4 raptors in RAID0 :D

thats what I think you should do ;)

Here is my current "desktop" PC :D

arrrrgh, wtf

i leave and make some dinner and when i get back there is a box telling me my drive is about to fail so i better backup and the drive about to fail just happens to be the one i am selling

this drive worked fine until i took it out, formatted and put it in as a slave drive. i really dont wanna mess with it, but i will either RMA myself and sell it as a "new refurb" for $25 or sell it for $20 shipped as-is


here is the WD site to check warranty status

here is the drive serial number which confirms it is under warranty until 3/2010
