Any hard drive made by Seagate or Western Digtal that are 7200RPM in speed with a 8MB buffer would work. As for your question of being able to run programs off it of, are you planning on installing windows on this hard drive or using it as a slave drive?

If you're installing windows on it then the answer is yes, if you are using it as a slave drive then you will be able to save projects to it which you will be able to open inside Photoshop and then modify it and save it again.

Maxtor would be fine I just don't recommend Maxtor drives because they die alot faster then either Seagate or WD from my own experience. As for a good hard drive, I already told you in my previous post that either Seagate or WD 7200RPM hard drive w/ 8MB buffer would be fine.
