Cache VS Hybrid? Tags: Cache Storage Hard Drives Last response: November 25, 2013 8:15 PM in Storage Share jamesray183 November 25, 2013 11:36:54 AM Will I be better off getting a 1tb seagate hybrid drive for £60 or buying a 32gb sandisk ssd cache and also a 500gb hdd? If the latter(a more complex and irritating to maintain setup) what kind of gains are we looking at? I want fast boot times and fast steam big picture, firefox etc. I dont need huge capacity so 550gb or even 320gb hdd is not a problem. Finally, would say a 320gb momentus xt hybrid AND an ssd cache be better than ssd cache+HDD?
