Need a New Storage Setup For Performance

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN,

I currently have Western Digital Caviar Blue It's about 8MB - 16MB of CACHE (SATA 3.0Gbs) It's alright but I know for what I paid (about $40 2 years ago) I can get better. I am looking for a good HDD that's about 500GB max because most of my information is stored on my external 1TB HDD.

+ If I can get a killer SSD + HDD Combo on "Black Friday" for around $150 I'll do so.

Hit me up with some links ^__^ Looking for a HDD that is faster than me whipping my hair back and forth, and trust me I whip like over 9000 RPMS.

The fastest HDD nowadays is the WD Velociraptor turning @10kRPM - but only this disk is likely to cost some 150$ @500GB. An alternative would be the all-time favorite on OCN the Samsung F3 1TB - though with the floodings in Thailand they have become scarce and very expensive.

My 2 cents: considering the supply problems from Thailand your best shot is to get only the SSD. A 60GB Agility2 is bellow 100$ usually and will give a huge performance boost compared to the current WD 320GB.
