Question about hard drives and overclocking...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 320 GB Samsung 7200 RPM hard drive in my machine. Once May rolls around (my birthday ) I'm going to treat myself and buy a 150 GB WD Raptor and use that as my main boot drive (OS and games) and the Samsung drive for storage etc. When I moved to a new home about a year ago, my XP install disk got lost in the move (searched through my stuff and new and old homes religiously and it was nowhere to be found) I began to look up alternatives and found this nifty little program for duplicating hard drives called Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing...s/migrateeasy/) which seems like it will take care of my problem. My plan worked well in my head until I saw a thread on here (can't remember the specific one) in which a guy installed a new OS on a hard drive (or something like that) and then had problems with overclocking, which I am also eagerly awaiting to do in May (more free time then). Would this same problem apply to me? I just want to make sure that my overclocking run will go as smoothly as possible. Also, while i'm asking, has anyone ever used this program before? If so, how well did it work for you? Thanks.

That would involve me paying $140 bucks for another XP pro disc which I REALLY don't want to do unless it is absolutely positively necessary. Anyone else?
