    for hard disk you should look at the search time, increasing hard disk capacity just allow you to store more data. Connection type of hard disk can also have impact, e.g. SATA vs IDE.

    but harddisk is the slowest unit in a system. If you want to improve speed you want to look at the CPU and RAM.

    It depends upon your setup. If you use one for OS and other for backup and temp operations it will be fast. And also if you are using IDE interface HDD then sometimes it increase your speed than normal or gets slowdown like I told it depends upon setup.

    If both are same size and brand, you can setup in RAID 0 mode if mobo supports, it will be faster than normal operations especially in copying and moving files, Applications responding etc,...

    If it is older system check your mobo specf's to see any Size limitations for HDD. And also make sure you have minimum of 512 Mb or More for better response. More size more seek time in some occasions.

    EDIT:
    OOPS sorry , I didn't see the Date ,thought it will be newer since it's in first page.

    • ctardi disagrees : Only use RAID 0 if you have a lot of data you really hate.
