What I would like to do is just buy a secondhand computer and plug the old drives in.
They are a pair of Seagate 7200.7 80Gb SATA-150 8MB 7200 RPM disks set up as RAID 1.
I no longer need the mirror.
What I want to know is, what do I need to consider in the purchase of a second-hand computer, in the way of specifications, to ensure that I can just plug one of the old drives in and be going again?
Since they were driven through a Promise SATA-150 PCI card, do I need to drive just one of them through the same card or should it plug straight in?
