Last article I read stated that hard drive prices are going to be relatively high until 2014. 1 TB should be plenty of space for both games and music. There really isn't much of a reason to separate them. | Report abuse hbriggs May 29, 2012 9:46:54 PM yeah i doubted it would be any time soon, i wish it was back to 40 quid for a 1tb spinpoint. will the performance difference between them be worth the £20 difference? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>New hard drive for games and storage.> Related ressources: ForumCan someone explain how 2 HDs in raid 0 and 1 storage hard drive work ForumOut of storage , how to work out a second hard drive ?
