If you dont mind having double the space you have now I would say buy a 120 gig HD and back up all of your files you want to keep. Then reformat the drive windows is installed.

Whatever floats your boat. As long as it gets the task done you want to perform.

Get the raptor, Install the O/S, delete the unwanted files of the 160 and de-frag it. Problem solved.

Youll really notice the difference with the raptor.

Cache does make a big difference but the raptor has 8Mb which is more thn enough for the drive capacity. I used to have 7k250 drives, they are the fastest 7200rpm drives and i was quite taken back by the difference in speed when I installed the raptors. GO FOR RAPTORS
