|I have 2 P.C.s as follows|
P.C.1 : 865G/GVM3-V (MS -7101 V2.0) M-ATX MicroStar Motherboard
Pentium 4 Dual Core Processor
80 GB WD Hard Disk 1.5 Gb/s
512 MB DDR1 RAM
250 Watt Power Supply
Bought in 2006
P.C.2 : M2N68-AM SE2 ASUS Motherboard
250 GB Seagate BARRACUDA 7200.10 Hard Disk 3 Gb/s
2 GB DDR2 RAM
400 Watt Power Supply
Bought in 2009
The Hard Disk on P.C.1 has the following thing written on it - 5v ... .48A
12v ... .50A
The Hard Disk on P.C.2 has the following thing written on it - 5v ... .72A
12v ... .52A
Now , I want to install the Hard Disk on P.C. 1 into P.C. 2 & Vice Versa .
However , I am concerned that when I try this out what if there is some spark or short-circuit due to some sort of power-mismatch because of which I end up killing one of the motherboards or Hard Disks . Can I safely just swap the 2 Hard Disks ? Is there any more information I need to give regarding these P.Cs ?
What are the precautions in general that one needs to bear in mind before adding new devices onto a P.C. Or in other words , how does one check whether a certain device will be compatible with a certain system or not ?
