Okej So im on my next step in Uppgrading and this time its a new hardrive

So i got a IDE 120 gig atm 4meg or something crappy.

So what should i get SATA/IDE/SCSI. Im using DFI lanparty NF 3 and the uhm ya the Bios that was posted there on the DFI guide. So i dont think SATA error will pop up =D

And ya price range is 100-170 US. SCSI for 150 US is a bit crappy only 37 gig =/

But found Maxtor 200gig SATA for 100US or Western 200Gig for 100US Both 8mb cach and 7200RPM

Help Plz

It all depends on what you intend or want to get out of this drive most. If you have massive storage needs, get a 250GB or 300 GB 7200rpm drive. If you want the drive to be faster (e.g. it will be the drive on which you install your games), get a smaller 10,000rpm drive.

But like if i install Windows and program etc on my IBM drive and then get a SCSI hardrive and only intall games on that one..will that work?

What about having windows on a SCSI drive lol =P

You should have your OS and games on your fastest drive cause then the load times will drop drastically

oh yea, you should consider a RAID array
A couple of Raptors on a RAID array will be almost, if not as fast as, an SCSI drive and definitely a LOT CHEAPER!

Sure it will work. Once the hardware is configured and working, software doesn't care what kind of interface your drive is using.

It will work but I think you'd be better off installing Windows and games on your fastest drive, boot times would drop and game loading times too.
