You can add as many SATA drives as your motherboard and PSU will support. There does not have to be an OS on the drive, nor does the drive have to be a PATA/UDMA/IDE drive.Just make sure that the SATA port is enabled in Setup (Bios) They usually are by default. This is a great solution to keep a current backup of your C: drive in case of HDD Failure. You can add a USB/SATA or eSATA drive if you prefer.

You should have no problem installing the drive.

One will contain the OS (C:) and the other can be for data

You just may need to make sure the correct drive is selected in as the Boot drive in the BIOS.

[SOLVED] HT vs Physical cores?
Which is better and why o.O I mean 2core with 4threads or 4core with 4threads? Example: Core i3-2100 (3,1GHz) or Core i5-2300(2,8GHz) is better? And why? o.o
