I'm looking to build an external hard drive. I want to have on the external enclosure 2 Firewire ports, and a USB port, along with an On/Off switch. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest one that is 50 dollars or cheaper.
I also have an 80 gig, and 150 gig hard drive inside my computer. What I want to do is buy a new SATA hardrive: http://www.zipzoomfl...tCode=101205-11 and put that inplace of my operating system Hard Drive (80 gig). I'm wondering how I can do this. I want to get a faster drive as my operating hard drive so it speeds up my computer a little bit. Is there a way to easily make a duplicate of my 80 gig hard drive onto the SATA hard drive, and then declare the SATA hard drive as my boot hard drive? And I'm wondering if that is a good idea to just take the 80 gig then and put it in the external enclosure... The enclosed hardrive will be used for video editing at my college... That's why I need fire wire, and that's why i want to just put the 80 gig in there.
I also wanted to know if that hard drive (SATA) woudl be compatible with my motherboard.
You can see my computer specs below.
Thanks guys, you are always a big help.
