I have recently purchased two Dell Precision twin quad core (3.16Ghz) machines with a 250GB HDD in each; a Sapphire 1GB Video card will also be installed in both. Currently running 4GB but hope to upgrade to 12GB in the next few months.
What I want to do is purchase another HDD with min 1TB storage (possibly stretch down to 750GB). Been looking at:
I'll be running Photoshop scratch on the 250GB drive and the OS (Windows 7 Pro) and all apps will be installed on the new drive.
Main software that will be used: Adobe Creative Suite 5, 3D rendering applications and AutoCAD 2012.
Can I please have some suggestions for drives that match the performance and longevity of the above two examples but are a little easier on the wallet? Or am I just dreaming, and if I want this quality I have to pay for it?
