2900$ Gaming Build Needs HDD Storage - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Hi all,

I'm new here but this looks like almost exactly what I was wondering about, so I didn't want to make a new thread. This seems like a really awesome community. Just a quick question for you all since there have been a lot of options thrown out there:

Which do you think would be best for gaming:

1) 2 WD Caviar Black's RAID 0
2) 2 WD RE4's RAID 0
3) 2 Samsung Spinpoint F4's RAID 0
4) 2 WD Velociraptors RAID 0

I'm working on a new rig and never have been very knowledgeable about storage solutions. I hope this is relevant enough to not seem like a thread hi-jack.

Have a good one,

-Kozza

The Corsair and Samsung SataIII SSDs coming out this year destroy, especially in Raid0, if you look at the info from CES. Definitely gonna pick a couple of those up myself this year.

I've been wary of SSD's after reading about some issues with them fragmenting and slowing down the more you use them? I don't know if that is still true for the newer ones coming out. You'll have to forgive my lack of knowledge about these but I also heard that the, chips I guess it would be, only last for a finite number of erasures, and then cease to function. Which is why they implemented methods for spreading the load out evenly to maximize drive life.

I hope that my information only applies to older SSD's and not newer ones coming out, because I wouldn't be opposed to getting one or some if they've fixed the issues with them.
