    Hi, total newbie on a Mac. It arrives on Saturday.

    I've got 3 drives.
    1) 500GB SATA bought last month. Seagate (Filled with photos) throughput I get is Max 95mb/s - esata enclosure available - windows
    2) 320GB PATA USB enclosure available (filled with photos) - windows
    3) 1TB Samsung Spinpoint, NEW

    What's the best way in migrating. 1&2 are NTFS
    Mac Pro Dual Quad 2.8 comes with 320GB - do you think I need to switch it out with 1) or 3) or there will be no speed difference. I'm also planning on installing Vista 64

    Can I just insert the SATA 1) drive in a Mac pro.

    Things I've read so far.
    1) NTFS will be read only on a Mac
    2) PATA will not work with Mac Pro
