What do I look for (what kind of tests i.e Write Access, Read Acess?) in the performance charts from Tom's Hardware that will cause a huge improvement on performance between two hard drives? I am trying to decide which hard drive to install my OS on.
I recently bought the WD Scorpio Black 7200RPM 750GB 16MB Cache 3Gbps.
Old hard disk would be WD1600BEVT 160GB 3Gbps 5400RPM but it was not on the chart so I put the two closest models, WD1600BEVS and WD3200BEVT
Goal: Determine which to install OS on. Will it benefit from a HUGE performance increase? ~>50%?
