Question hard drive question (noobish)

stupid question for ya'll

I have two WD 1tb caviars in my comp right now. . .one has windows installed on it and the other is just extra storage space. . .

I have two open bays that I would like to install -

another 1tb drive
a 300 gb raptor . . . I would like to run my OS and programs off of this drive

can a drive that is full of data all ready be unplugged from the power supply and motherboard and still retain its contents?

I will have to take out the hard drive in bay 1, which is a 1tb running my OS and programs. . .

blah blah, I hope you get what I am asking. . .anything I should be looking out for??

thanks all!
