storage upgrade recommendation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for advice on upgrading my hard drive speed. Basically I want a huge drive that I can have all my games installed on with good load times. My desktop has a 120gb os drive and a 2TB hdd in it right now. I have another 3TB hdd I was thinking about putting in raid 0, or getting a 60gb ssd for a smart response cache drive or both.

The other thing I've been considering was 2 new SSHD's in raid 0. I just got a new laptop with this setup and i've been very impressed with it. Anyone else have experience with these new Seagate hybrids?

I don't want to spend 300-500 on a huge SSD.

My motherboard is a pz77v-lk with 2 6gb/s and 4 3gb/s sata connections.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

WD Velociraptor is the best compromise between HDD and SSD. I don't recommend the SSHDs for anything other than casual desktop use, as the NAND cache is way too small to be useful for much more. They're OK for laptops, but not really for gaming desktops.

I can get 2x1tb 7200rpm, set up in raid 0, each with 8gb nand for about the same price as 1 500gb raptor..
I don't really see how it would be better performance wise even, let alone capacity.
