I am a bit iffy on the new SSD internal drives, I understand they run faster and that they don't use an actuator or contain platters. But they are also ex-pen-sive especially when its around $3 for each Gigabyte, doesn't even sound worth it. I am trying to find a good Solid, reliable HDD (SATA) large in capacity, can be used for gaming and is affordable. Any suggestions, I was looking at the velicraptor and the caviar black through WD, but after reading so many bad reviews online about WD, I wasn't to happy and just from personal experience, I have a WD that just crapped out on me about a month ago.
I have three seagate 7200.10 drives in my computer. They are fast enough for me. I think the read speeds for them are around 60MB/s. If you get the newer 7200.12/WD blacks you should be fast enough. Hard to beat the speed of the SSD however.
