Hi there,

I want to buy a 300gb raptor drive as my startup disk but I know some models don't fit the Mac PRO ( the connectors are not in the same place as the bay ).

I have a 2 x 2.8 octo core macpro.

Will this fit as a 10.000 rpm drive ? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Western-Digital-Velociraptor-Enterprise-OEM/dp/B001AQWLTQ/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1219950839&sr=1-7

Also I want to buy a couple of 1TB drives.

Any problems between http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Barracuda-7200-11-7200RPM-Internal/dp/B0013AD8JQ/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1219950894&sr=1-4 or this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Western-Digital-Processor-Internal-OEM/dp/B001C271MA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1219950941&sr=1-2

Any recommendations between Segate or WD Black caviar ? For the 1TB drives ?

Cheers in advance
