Default HD Questions.

Right now I have this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131013

And this hd:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148155

I've just purchased this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136033

Right now, I have the 1st hd plugged into the the first sata slot.

I can just configure the other for the second sata slot put another power connector to it and I'm good to go?

thanks for help.

I would use the raptor for your operating system, and store your files on the other hdd, that will improve performance alot.

So plug your raptor into the first Sata slot, and your existing one into the second slot, and reformat them.
