New HDD Tags: Hard Drives RAM Storage Last response: January 27, 2010 12:22 AM in Storage Share m4matteo January 25, 2010 9:14:48 PM Hey peeps. I'm in the process of upgrading my PC a bit and ive just upgraded the RAM. Im looking at doing my HDD's now. ATM i have a 75G, 120G and a 250G, they are all IDE and all FULL! The OS is on the 75Gb I'm obviously looking at increasing my overall Gb size I'm looking at maybe getting a single 1Tb+ HDD. But i dunno if it is better to get a smaller HDD for the OS and my games and a second larger HDD for documents etc???? The motherboard can handle SATAII so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks More about : hdd masterjaw January 25, 2010 11:55:35 PM You may acquire a 1TB SATA HDD and it would still be faster than your IDE drives. m4matteo January 26, 2010 5:40:08 PM Yeah i know the SATA driver is gonna be faster My question is should i get say one single Tb HDD or get a smaller HDD for the OS and my games and a second larger HDD for documents. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer masterjaw January 27, 2010 12:22:23 AM Just get a single fast 1TB HDD (Samsung F3s, Caviar Black, Seagate 7200.12, etc) and be happy with it. Unless your gonna use an SSD for the OS, there's no need to separate boot drive from the rest. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumImaging Old HDD to new HDD .
