Samsung Spinpoint F3s in Raid 0 Tags: Hard Drives Performance NAS / RAID Spinpoint Samsung Storage Product Last response: September 6, 2010 7:28 PM in Storage Share lardacus September 4, 2010 9:38:15 PM Should I go with 2 of the 1 TB versions of the F3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., or go with 2 of the 500GB versions here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... The 2 1 TBs will run 119.98 (during sale until 9/6) while the 2 500 GBs will run 109.98. The 1 TB versions offer a 16 MB cache while the 500 GB versions offer a 32 MB cache; how will this effect performance? My main goal here is to increase gaming performance while trying to avoid purchasing an overpriced SSD.
