Will this hard drive perform well for gameplay walkthrough videos? Tags: Hard Drives Games Video Storage Last response: December 10, 2012 9:44 PM in Storage Share errii December 10, 2012 9:22:08 PM I'm thinking about buying this hard drive for gameplays only. I try to do walkthroughs on games that can be helpful to someone trying to get through a part in a game http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My old hard drive that has my OS on it. Games run at about 30 fps with Dxtory on, and sometimes start randomly stuttering when I turn it on to record my games http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I really care about the best quality videos out there, so I try to strive for 1080p videos, but if the write speed is only around 80+mb/s, I can deal with 720p. Not good at figuring this stuff out. Also, my budget would be around $70. I record hours of gameplay videos, and I could leave it on the drive for weeks before deleting it. Would this hard drive be a good choice for this? Thank you!

If you really want keeping performance while recording games, then got a SSD drive. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
