    Hey, if I bought a new hard drive, would I be able to
    install SL on it? (the HD would not have leopard on it)

    Kind Regards

    if you want to use the upgrade disk, just install leopard then directly install Snow Leopard so this way it's kind of fresh install :p

    With my GTX 285, I'd have to swap it out for my 8800 GT and then put it back in, so i can't really install Leopard on a new drive and then upgrade,
    I need to upgrade straight from SL which should have (better have) the drivers for the GTX 285.

    I think I might just.. do nothing lol, wait for a few updates, then buy the disc with the updates on it (like 10.6.2).

    Thanks
    Kind Regards
