I want to change my curent hdd Maxtor 250Gb Sata150 with 16mb
I have to choice betwin a single 320Gb hdd or a Raid0 with 2*160gb .
1) So, i am thinking to get 2 Hitachi 7K160 with 160gb platters 8mb cache and make a Raid0 .
Will this significantly improve the speed in loading games, and multi tasking compared to a single Hitachi T7K500 320Gb with 160gb platters and 16mb cache ?
2) I never had hitachi before. Are they loud in seek mode compared to maxtor, samsung, western, and segate . Please make a TOP5 from the loudest to the qouiet one
I cant spend more then 120Euros so i must stick to this sizes ( 2*160 or single 320 ) The hdd space it not so important, 160 will be ok if the speed is very high in raid compared to single 320 drive.
