I hear a click...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
6 Hard Drives, one of them is clicking *facepalm*

Problem is I have no idea which one. All of the drives read and write fine but my suspicion is that it's my primary 750gb drive (Split into a 100g, 650g partition)

My 100g partition is my system drive, my 650 is my game installation drive. What's clueing me in is the fact that whenever I load a game, I can hear clicking. Plus as I recall, I could feel it vibrate really bad when I was working in the computer last.

So....I'm looking into some paths. I want an SSD for my primary drive and maybe a few games that I play regularly (Wow etc...)

Then I'd need another drive to handle game installs. I'd like to get a relatively fast drive for my installations. But I have no idea what I need in terms of an SSD (size etc...)

My user profile is stored off the main partition and all that is really on my c drive is utilities, workspaces and windows...

I'm hoping newegg puts out a sale on SSD's soon but I don't know how long the drive has left...

Recommendations? I've heard good things about the OCZ Agility 2's...
