WD1600AAJS or ...?

Hi all

I’m thinking of selling my current Seagate barracuda 7200.7 120 SATA hard drive and ‎get two new Western Digital WD1600AAJS or WD1600JS and set a RAID 0 config, but ‎my question is:‎

What is the difference between WD1600AAJS and WD1600JS, which one is better?! ‎These two models really confused me and I couldn’t decide.‎

Are there any other better possibilities for the equal budget?!‎

I got a GA-K8NF-9 motherboard, Athlon 64 3200+ and use my PC for gaming most of ‎the time and file transfer rate, reading, writing and loading time for games are of most ‎concern…‎

Thanks

  1. Hmm... it seems there was another post asking the same question for the WD5000AAKS version, but in my case I couldn't really figure out what is the difference ?!
  2. the AAJS uses a single 160gb platter which increases performance.
  3. Is there any direct comparison!?‎
  4. the WD1600AAJS 8MB is THE fastest 7200 available (its right behind the 1TB hitachi i believe, but that one is also ~$400+)... the only consumer hdds faster, are the raptors, but their price, isnt exactly proportionate to their capacity either
  5. I can't vouch for the results, but here's your comparison benchmarks

  6. Thanks so much they really helped me out, now I can choose easily and it seems there is ‎a quite difference between those two models…‎
  7. some of the fastest maxtor ata133 can't touch the aajs. It runs fine in solo mode and there isn't really a performance benefit in games w/raid. llate

    Thanks indeed for the advise, but finally I bought Samsung SP2504C and I'm really happy with it...
