Hello, I'm going to build a new computer and I was wondering if I should buy a new 3.5'' HDD or if I can just use the 2.5'' HDD from my "dead" laptop.
Basically will I lose anything (performance-wise) by using a 2.5'' HDD instead of a 3.5'' one.
Below are the specs of the 2.5'' HDD I'm talking about:
WD Scorpio Black 320 GB SATA 3 Gb/s Hard Drive
Rotational Speed 7,200 RPM (nominal)
Buffer Size 16 MB
Average Latency 5.50 ms (nominal)
Read Seek Time 12.0 ms
Track-To-Track Seek Time 2.0 ms (average)
