I respectfully , completely , disagree! The Velociraptors are not crap, there good very fast hdd.s Why do people love the samsungs here?? Because there cheap? They are not the best choice for a operating system? And definetly not better or faster than a velocorapter? Why not Get a ssd for your operating system , there faster than the 1000RPM veloraptors.
velocorators=100rpm mechanical drive
spinpoint=7200rpm mechanical drive
ssd = faster solid state drive
I have had two SPINPOINTS go bad on me, one just two weeks ago and that system was new with very light usage? ? Do you want that one?
I cant recommend samsungs f3,s I believe Western digitals blacks or even blue's are much better. They are a little more money, but i believe you get what you pay for. If you want a cheap storage drive, sure buy a spinpoint!
PS . you said intell build, the 2500k is dropping in price and i have seen it for as low as $150 us man how can you go wrong with that?
