Hd Cache And The Swap File

I have an older Maxtor and I was wondering if the newer HD's w/8MB cache would speed things up a little bit.Specifically,if it has to hit the swap in a game'I get stuttering.Would a HD with a bigger cache help this,or is another 512RAM the only real answer?

The new ones with the 8mb cache are alot faster the read and write faster. I have 2 older hdds with 2 and 4 mb cache and a 120gb with 8mb. The 120gb runs alot faster than the other 2. More memory wouldn't hurt either.

Yeah,I was thinking more RAM might be the real answer.I've been doing a little research and found out 2x512 will work better than 4x256.Too bad,this KHX really likes my board.Well,it's going to be a while before I can pull off any change$,so I guess I'll just have to cry myself to sleep for a while :P
