A. they are quicker
B. you can backup onto your second drive and/or use it as a storage drive

I'd personally set up a backup using acronis backup and recovery to run every couple of weeks, this will allow you to restore his system state incase of cataclysmic failure

Comps

EDIT - on top of that saving you a pretty penny as well, I jsut checked how much they are on newegg and you're saving like $60.

also, would it make sense to get a 6.0 Gb/s HDD at 7200 rpm? At 7,200 rpm, would you even be using the extra bandwidth, or does it bottleneck because of the "slow" speed of the hard drive?

What specs do you look at besides rpm to see if one hard drive is faster than another? i'm asking because they are both 7,200 rpm

Cache makes a huge difference. The F3's are known to be the fastest mechanical drives right now.

Not really since not many SSD's are utilising SATA6 at the moment, the only ones I think that do are the intel discks.

It's also the platters that the mechanical drive runs on, the Samsungs are pretty much it at the moment for cost/reliablility/performance

True, it's also the controllers that the drive uses and the platters again. The extra cost isn't worth the performance you might get.

He's not gaming, why go with those?

Man not to troll your thread but if no heavy gaming is going to be used you could build yourself a system for a lot cheaper, future proof for moderate usage is miles away from a "future proof" gaming pc.

But, I do agree with the f3's. And get them while you can. Samsung's HD division has been bought by Seagate.
