I wanted a little help with choosing a replacement harddrive for my Desktop as my old 2 harddrives have now started to show signs of old age (they are getting increasingly senile and keep forgetting that they are there ). I am using a SSD drive (160gb) as my system drive but i want to have 2 harddrives as my storage for things like I-tunes, photos and steam.
My motherboard is Asus Sabertooth x58 with a I7 950, 8 GB Ram so i do have access to Sata 6gb (if i switch it on) but to be honest 3gb is working for me just fine.
I am looking for a harddrive that is fast,reliable, around 1tb or 600gb but i dont want to spend the earth as i would then be looking at SSD. I never got a velociraptor harddrive but i was wondering if that was the way to go or would some of the 40 quid Samsung drives be just as good but a fraction of the price.
I am in the future going to be setting up a file sever so these drives will mainly be used for games and photo editing.
