Hi Everyone! I'm a newb with a question about hard drives. Currently I have a Seagate Barricuda 7200.11 16mb cache 250gb, and a Western Digital Cavier green 1.5tb.
I would like to keep my operating system and programs on a quick and efficient hard drive and use one for storage of music/movies and another for games.
I'd like to use the Seagate 250gb drive for the games, the WD 1.5tb for music/movies/storage. What would be a fast complimentary drive to put my OS and Programs on? Or am I better off buying a new drive for gaming and putting the OS and programs on the Seagate? I plan on playing games like Bio Shock 2, Crysis, Diablo 3.
My current System;
Antac 900 case,
Core 2 duo E8400 @ 3.6Ghz (400x9)
2 Zotac AMP! 8800GT SLI
8Gb SLI Ready OZC Ram
40" HD Samsung 550 tv for monitor
250Gb Seagate Barricuda 7200.11
1.5Tb Western Digital Caviar Green
You may want to consider the new Kingston 40GB SSD (due to be released 11/09, $115.00 - $40.00 MIR) for your OS only (Yes, there are faster SSD's, but the Kingston would be a nice, inexpensive unit for the OS only) and the WD for games, or just keep the Seagate for games.
Thanks, I was leaning towards the WD 640GB Black actualy, there really isn't much bad to say, and the reviews are great as far as speed go. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, and my budget is "the best deal I can get", I'm not concerned with cost too much, but want good bang for my buck. I think the WD Black is the way to go.
Sounds like a good deal on the Kingston SSD, I'll have to look into that one as well! Thanks Again
