Need a new HDD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My birthday is coming up and i cant decide what i want, i WANT another HD5850 and a SATA DVD drive, but i NEED some new HDD(s)
My 1tb F3 is filling up closer than i would like it to be, i have 500gb left with 2 games installed out of a total of nearly 50 . So i could either get 1 more F3 and use the rest of the money to get everything else i want, grab 2 F3's for tri RAID and get some of the stuff i want, grab a 2tb storage drive and get everything i want, "borrow" my step dads WD500 green and get liquid cooling (not that i need it) or get an HD6950 O_o SOOO many choices. For now PLEASE stick to just the HDD choices and dont branch off and say OOOO SSD ftw (2$/gb = fail) so what HDD setup should i choose? The speed of RAID 0 (2 to 3 drives) or the wallet friendly green drive for storage?

I would say go for another F3, maybe even 2 more and go for like raid 5
if you only buy one more f3, then buy another video card.

it depends, are you satisfied with the video card, if not then make that a higher priority than a sata dvd drive, as it doesn't make that mush of a difference IMO, and then get one or two more F-3s for raid 0 or 5 respectivly
