OK so I can't wait for the release of Windows 10 and I decided to get a new 1TB Hard Drive for my custom built Windows 7 Gaming Desktop.
Here are my specs-
1 Thermaltake V4 Black Edition Case.
2 MSI Z97 PC Mate Motherboard.
3 Intel Core i5 3.2 GHz CPU.
4 NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 GPU.
5 Western Digital WD1003FZEX 1TB Hard Drive (Windows 7).
6 HyperX Fury 8GB RAM.
7 unknown brand 600W PSU.
Tell me if any of this is good enough for my PC to run Windows 10 on another Hard Drive.

Your setup will run Windows 10 just fine. Is there a real reason to run it on another hard drive though? Why not just partition it?

I'll use Windows 7 for my older games (MW2, TF2, DOOM 3 etc---) and Windows 10 for my newer games (Advanced Warfare, CSGO, etc-----).

You know that Windows 10 is still in a Technical Preview so there's a lot of bugs and glitch in it? I suggest you to not run Windows 10 as a "Main OS" if you don't know exactly how to handle a Technical Preview, nor if you don't know how to troubleshoot your issues yourself.

I'll get it when it is officially released.
