Looking for some clarification..
As for getting it in kit form, if I don't need anything off of the old hard drive, would getting the hard drive in kit form still be recommended? Bios is currently at A07 and from what I have read can be updated to A11, which I can and will do before installing new hard drive. An external hard drive would not suit my purposes, which is why I am trying to figure out if I can upgrade my current system enough or if I am going to have to buy a new one. You said "if you have a 200GB or larger currently installed that going to a 2TB shouldn't be a problem", however, this computer does not have a 200GB hard drive to start with. Thanks for all your help/advice.
