Which drive for OS? 640GB AAKS or 1TB F3?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My 1TB F3 is coming tomorrow.
Which would be faster to host my OS (windows xp)?

I also plan on storing media files.

There is no real significant speed difference between (modern) traditional drives IMO. The F3 is supposedly quieter so I'd say go with that as windows spams noisemaking log writes even when idle.

If speed is a concern get an SSD already, prices are rapidly dropping and speeds rapidly rising.

I'd go with the F3, FWIR it's one of the top mechanical drives out there.
