Kinda new to all this, but im building 2 computers.. a HTPC for the living room, and a desktop for the office.. Im going to have the HTPC stream movies from the desktop. So my desktop is going to play as a office computer/gaming/NAS (light gaming btw)... Does that sound ok?
if i am not mistaken, the answer is yes. like madblade said, these drives will run as a regular desktop drive but they are optimized for NAS use, made to be constantly on24/7.

These work great in a desktop PC or an HTPC. I have 4 of these drives. But beware, Newegg does a lousy job of shipping mechanical hard drives and you could easily get a dud from them. I got mine from US NCIX and they were packed with love and care and all of my drives are fine.
Just FYI. Check out the review here.
It actually is more "Green" then the WD Green Intellipower 3TB (Less Power Usage and Lower Temps) and has a much quicker sequential read/write which is good for movies and such.
Perfect for HTPC's who may want to transform into a full NAS at some point.
