How important is it with a gaming system? ... in example 16MB cache to 32MB cache? 32MB cache to 64MB cache? 16MB cache to 64MB cache? More about : hard drive cache Best solution photonboy a c 87 G Storage April 8, 2012 2:31:31 AM The hard drive cache has absolutely no bearing on gaming. You can Google it, or Wiki it but basically it's not that important at all. Just buy the hard drive that fits your budget and capacity needs. Even the difference between a 5400RPM and 7200RPM isn't that big for game loading times. Probably no more than 10%.
