Default Re: Hard Drive Update

os has lots of tiny files all over the shop and page so a raptor is better for os because of random read performance ,Its not about transfer rate.

8ms vs 11ms (guessing)

Separate OS drive + ,Separate OS sata controller ++


To be honest though everythings fast enough these days ,I click , Its there ,I dont think a few milliseconds makes much difference.

I had Vista on striped 36gb, After the array broke I didn't notice any difference (apart from a lower score)
