WD Raptor

Recommended Posts

Read last post

 

Do you think that spending the money to get one of these is worth it for mainly gaming? I do play BF2 alot; but i was wonering why it was only SATA-I and not II. also should i just stick with getting a normal SATAII 7200rpm HD?

I have 2 Sata-I Hd's in raid 0 and I dont notice a difference between my roomates raptor drive when playing games. There are a lot of other variables that might eliminate the difference, but to me its just not worth it. If my sata-I's work fast enough for me, then I would assume that Sata-II's would be all the better! :)

i wouldnt think a raptor would give you the performance increase you are looking for. go for something with a big cache(16mb) like the western d 250 sataII.

ok taking your advise i went and looked at the WD 250g SATAII

so this will give me a boost in loading times?

i know that the raptor is fast but it just is kinda small and very expensive for what it is.

 

going to be playing BF2 and with the time it takes to load i can take a shower ^^ (esp. "Verifying Client Data")
