I am gathering the hardware items I need for a new computer. I have always been believer in WD. I have 2 60 Gb 10000 RPM drives for 7 years with no problems.
It is time to rebuild.
I plan to build around a GH-Z68X-UD4-B3. My old board is the D915GEV from Intell. If I knew what Sata version was used it would help me a lot, but that is not my main question. I used the 10,000 rpm drives to max my responce in 2005.
That new board will have 4 Sata 6 GB/s ports. How to make the best use of those is the question. I asked one forum and I got the stock answer - SSD OF COURSE. I don’t believe that at all.
You have a 1TB that is ready for Sata 6 gb/s with a large cache. Where would I get actual performance figures on the drives that are possible so I can make an intelligent decision?
You throw me a curve by WD VelociRaptor eith the 450 or 600 GB, but not the 150 GB which is big enough for C drive.
I am thinking of the 1 TB and partitioning it into 2 drives, one for C drive, and the other for Data. What is the best idea?
