I have a wd 740GD 74GB raptor from my last system about 4years ago. I am currently pricing hardware for a i7 860 or 920 build and was going to get a wd 1tb cavier black. Im not interested in SSD right now. Should I use the raptor for an os/system drive and the cavier for storage?
FYI this is was the successor to the original 36G Raptor. This WD740GD Raptor is the 74G version and was purchased about 4 years ago, but its a 10k drive with TCQ. It is not a velociraptor, which I think is new. I tried to compare the specs between the two, but I am not technical enough to determine if one is faster. I was just going to use it as a OS/app drive for speed, but if the Samsung F3 is equal to it I wont bother. Thanks for any replies.
