New Rig, need HDD advise

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, first thanks in advance for any advise.

I am building a new system and need 1 thing resolved. I can't decide: 3 - WD 7200rpm 64mb cache sata6 OR 2 WD 10,000rpm 16mb cache sata3? Please help. (fyi, SSD are out of my price range right now...)

Thanks!

EDIT: Forgot to mention, this rig will be used for just extreme gaming, high end gaming performance. That is all

I have a WD Caviar Black 7200rpm 64mb cache sata 6 and I've not reallllly noticed a big difference over my old Maxtor sata 2 drive. Also if you're going for the caviar black, be warned, they are loud!

Was your Maxtor a 10,000rpm drive? Anyone else want to chime in? Anyone?
