Hard drive replacement

I have a Quadra 605 with an IBM internal hard drive (160 Mb) supplied as original equipment. I also have a Quantum 650MB hard drive that I would like to replace the IBM with and purchase another larger external hard drive.

Would the power supply in the Quadra be large enough to supply adequate power to the Quantum 650 MB drive without any problems later on?

absolutely. the extra drive size does not require more power at all. In fact you could put several 1GB drives on it and never have a problem. any external drives you put on have their own power supply so thats even less of a non-problem.

Just so my question is correctly understood, I'll do a better job of stating it.

I would like to remove the IBM internal hard drive from my Quadra 605, which is a 160 MB size and replace it with a Quantum 650 MB drive currently being used as an external hard drive with it's own built-in power supply. Since I'm not aware of what the power consumption of each drive is, would the current internal power supply in the Quadra be sufficiently large enough to operate the larger memory Quantum drive if I just swapped it?

as stated before...yes absolutely. Drive size doesnt matter. Larger drives do not necessarily consume more power.

Thank you for the second answer. I wasn't certain that I had made myself clear the first time.
