I just got the 40 off some computer i ripped apart.
That's not a bad idea. But you're wasting power with it plugged in all the time. Unplug the molex connector to the 40 gig and just plug it back in whenever you need it again. It'll save you a little bit of $ on your electric bill, granted it won't be a lot, it's still something.
