HDD and System Performance


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys !


My current rig is fast and stable and i love it.

But i think iam bottleneck it with my HDD wich is Western Digital 80 GB 7200 RPM 8 MB Cache IDE.


So basicly i have two questions :


1. If i 'll move to SATA or SATA II will my system performance will be significant faster ?


2. If yes,then wich brand HDD u will suggest,i will only need 80-100 GB middle range prices.


Thanks guys !

The HDD's are always the bottle-neck in todays systems &

without going to RAM-Disk or another solidstate HDD replacement, it is going to stay that way.


The actual seek times & transfer rates of single HDD's is about the same regardless of interface.

The SATA II, SATA, ATA-133 & ATA-100 are all about the same.


The 10,000RPM WD Raptors are by far the fastest & 3 of them in RAID 0 will show an improvement.
