Hey there. If this Belongs in the Tech part sorry.

My question is am i able to upgrade my G75VW with these
Seagate 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive SATA 6Gbps 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch ST1000LM014
Samsung MZ-7TD250BW 840 Series Solid State Drive (SSD) 250 GB Sata 2.5-Inch

Those are the newest and before i was going to upgrade to these but since there are new ones i thought i could just get these.ALso would i need more RAM or would i be ok?
SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC256B/WW
Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32 MB Cache 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive ST750LX003

As far as I understand it, the hybrid drive will have no benefit as a secondary drive. You'd be better served with a 750GB normal drive ( I prefer Western Digital Blacks due to their 5yr warranty and excellent lifespan)

I base my statement on the following quick research I did: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/286105-32-momentus

I personally would recommend the 840 PRO series. It uses a more proven chip type and offers better read/write speeds..

Here's some easy reading on the different chip types:

The PRO series is MLC

The Standard series is TLC
