  1. what kinda stupid question is this? :S
  2. SSDs have a RAM cache much like a hard drive, although it's mainly used for caching writes, not reads. It's built into the drive and there is nothing you can do to control how it works.

    It's better than your answer. Stop with the jabs!
  4. My big deal here was I was looking into the Larrabee From intel, and because it was droped I was hoping to find another way, to help games run on my system with out a fully programmable GPGPU/APU. Its not going to work as good as I had hope anyways. Plus with a GPGPU/APU I could have games from Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo run on a PC, the profit is greater. I think its a better way to go instead of a SSD for storage management system. Now my problem is where to get a programmable GPU tesla and the information to make it run the way I want to accomplish the task. None of these thing are readly available yet.
  5. By the way my goal is not to get Playtation, xbox, or nintendo game running on my system, but to run games that I can only get 25 FPS to run at a higher FPS with out overclocking.
  6. I dont know much about raid systems but I was thinking with the right raid system 0+1 I could run these games faster. Any ideas?
  7. It's pretty unlikely that your hard drive is the limiting factor. If your games are only running 25fps, your CPU (maybe) or GPU (more likely) is the limiting factor, not the hard drive.

    Dont tell me his question isn't stupid as it comes. May be he used wrong wording/full sentence, but i gave a proper answer.
