Hard Drives

hi guys! i posted a thread a while back, trying to decide what type of drive i should get for my gaming pc.

here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tomshardwareus.inc&cat=30&post=308517&page=1&p=1&sondage=0&owntopic=1&trash=0&trash_post=0&print=0&numreponse=0&quote_only=0&new=0&nojs=0

anyway, the ssds are just out of my price range, and i like the speed of them, but i want the space of a hdd. games would probly take up about 50gb, and then the os, probly 20 more.

so, i was looking at hybrid drives. amazon and td have some cool ones.

Western Digital WD Scorpio Black 750 GB SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Internal Bulk/OEM 2.5-Inch Mobile Hard Drive - Western Digital
$94.99


Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32 MB Cache 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive ST750LX003 - Seagate
$149.99

so what do you think?

  1. did you know that SSD Prices have dropped considerably in the past 3 months since your last post? You can now get a 256G SSD for under $200 now.
  2. Get an SSD. Prices are down, down down. $100-120 for a reliable 120/128GB drive.

    and another $100 for a terabyte HDD:

    You'll get more speed and more space than a hybrid drive can offer, for $50 more. I'd only recommend a hybrid drive for someone with a laptop who can't stand to carry an external HD.
