How big should the HDD cache be for Win 7 Main drive Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital Cache Storage Last response: March 27, 2011 11:19 PM in Storage Share keto6789 March 27, 2011 9:51:52 PM Hi. I'm thinking of going with a WD 250G for my main Windows 7 drive and see on Newegg 8, 16, 32, 64MB caches. Someone said the cache size doesn't matter much when I did a google search, is that true? I can get a nice WD 250 GB 7200RPM drive for $44 bucks on Newegg with a 16mb cache, is this ok? Thanks much.

I would go with the Samsung Spinpoint F4 320GB drive instead at the same price range! | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>How big should the HDD cache be for Win 7 Main drive> Related ressources: ForumFrom Big HDD to Tiny SSD: Windows 7 's built in tools ForumUse ram as hard drive cache ?
