Which should I go for? HDD(5400) + SSD vs. HDD(7200)
Jun 30, 2012, 12:57 AM
So, I haven't done much research yet, but I currently have these two options in mind:
1)HDD WD 2TB SATA3 64MB WD20EARX
+ OCZ 120GB Agility 3
2)Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA3
Option #1 is 40$ more expensive than #2
Is it worth it? (again with the 40$ dif. it's the smallest possible where I live)
I'd be using the SSD as but drive for Ubuntu and would probably also put my most used programs on it as well(that should help with the performance, right?)
