maxtor 6Y120P0 ok for gaming?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Upgrading my computer in a few weeks. I already have a 7200 rpm 8mb cache hard drive. Will that be quick enough to keep up w/ a opt 165 2gb ram and 7900gt? Here is a link to its specs.

Should be.. I mean, once the game is loaded and the CPU and GPU have their way at it, everything takes place in the RAM. ONly when changing scenes (when walking, etc), will the hard drive be accessed.

I would just use the disk for now. If you find out it's not good enough for yuor taste, then you can always change

Good luck.
