Hey this might be a dumb question but I can't quiet find a clear answer.
My question is I have a 110GB HDD that I want to take off my old Computer and put it onto my new build. Not exactly sure what the RPM is on it but im pretty sure it's not great considering it's kind of an old drive. If I transfer my old drive over to my new build after completing wiping it, could it bottleneck or hurt my other components such as the CPU,GPU if the HDD is slow? Or will it just load slower and I can upgrade when I have the money, as HDD are crazy expensive right now.
Alright so I just check and my HDD is a 7200RPM drive which im glad to hear,since that was my main worry that it might be a low RPM that would slow down my other components, which it wont. As for the age it's only a couple of years old and runs just fine so there should be no problem with that. And it is a sata drive.
It really depends, if the hard drive is working fine then its no big deal. Id test it using transfer speeds, moving a big file over. If its around 45mb/s (which is average for most hard drive speeds) then youre good. But if its slow like 9 mb/s. Dont think about it. Itll slow you down.
Also check the temp. should be around 35 ish degrees.
Ya I really have no money left after my new computer build. I don't really mind if I see a little slowness I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't damage any other components. So I'll keep this until I can afford a better HDD.
