Installing Apps/Games on D: drive Tags: Games Windows 7 Last response: March 8, 2010 7:07 PM in Windows 7 Share Sittler27 March 8, 2010 5:22:32 PM Not sure if this question belongs here, but: I have a 74GB 10000RPM drive as my C: drive and a 320GB drive as my D: drive. By the time I install Windows 7 and World of Warcraft on my C: drive, I'm left with not enough space to install my other games (namely Dragon Age: Orgins and Mass Effect 2) on the C: drive. My question is whether I am going to see a significant performance hit if I install my other applications and games on D:\Program Files Added info, is I have 4GB RAM, a C2Q 9450 and an ATI 5850 video card.

If you wanna find out what the actual performance hit is, then install WOW on your D: drive. Measure the load time from both C and D drives. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
