PC Question

This is my settup at this time. I have one PC that is dedicated to trading. Intel Duo Core X6800 @ 2.93GHz with 3 GB RAM. 3 monitors on Nvidia GeForce 7950 GT cards. There are 2 Raptor drives 150 GB I used to run RAID on and (1) 500 GB to save files on along with 4 USB HD for backups and files. I just received a brand new NAS drive with (4) 500 GB drives that I can use also.

I had problems with one of the Raptor drives and had to reformat. While doing that I transfered all info to one drive which we will call "A".

The problem is that certain indicators I have are "nailed" to the second drive, drive "B" and it's hardware id. I have not been able to use them during this time.
The vendors for these indicators want more money for another set of indicators that would tie in to HD A.

Is there anyway I can run both hard drives off the same CPU at the same time while trading? Would Virtual Software help? I know I could move HD B to another box and tie it to one of my 3 monitors but I think this would be really cool if it will work! I know enough about this stuff to get me in trouble so I would appreciate anyones help on this.

Regards, NMTrader
