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

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 ?!

the AAJS uses a single 160gb platter which increases performance.

Is there any direct comparison!?‎

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

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…‎

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...
