4.0 out of 5 stars OK for a second Drive for a Gaming Rig, That's what mine is used for, 5 July 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD 1TB 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive - Caviar Blue (Personal Computers)
Does the job black WD HHD probably would of been best as there a little faster i believe but as this was cheap priced at £49.99 i couldn't really argue with that. My games run fine with it and most of my games are with steam so steam is installed on this drive so I'm happy with it but as people have already mentioned it will probably be my last HHD due to the SSD dropping slowly in price so i will invest in something like that in the near later future. But as for now my 120gb SSD for boot and programs and HHD for Games and larger programs.

A Note for new builders Remember to go through a New volume setup and then format the hard drive.
type this in the search bar diskmgmt.msc for windows 7 users probably same for windows 8 and other OS your see the drives in there and just right click on the new drive and your see what you got to do from there as stated above. Hope this helps non experienced people

If you are doing a fresh install of win7 or 8 then the setup will do all that is required, you need do nothing, it will create 1 partition plus a system partition then go on and install the OS., if you want to partition the drive further use disk management in the control panel after the OS is installed.

well since this post i actually purchased a different 2TB drive. I didnt do any of that stuff u mentioned, i just let windows 7 install on it normally i think? (im new to this). What would i do if i wanted to get windows 8 on there instead?

Just the same Ruben, let the Win8 DVD install the OS though if you already have win7 on that drive you will get asked if you want to upgrade to win8 or fresh install, I would always go with a fresh install and backup your personal files beforehand.

why is upgrading a bad idea? i will keep all my files with no need to backup then, right?

It is just cleaner and less chance of problems along the way particularly with other installed software, I have done it both ways and I always found a clean install best, also Windows will keep a copy of all the old win7 files on your HDD in case you want to revert the upgrade.
