Where to put the raptor
Posted on 2007-07-25
I have 3 hard drives. A 250 Gb Samsung spinpoint, 150GB WD Raptor, 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10. At first I thought it was a no brainer, use the raptor for system and the others for data. But I do alot of data loading for music production programs (kontakt, battery and ezdrummer especially).
Should I use the Raptor as a data drive to load some of my most commonly used audio progs (mainly romplers that load alot (1GB) of data for every project file opened)? Or will there be enough of a performance gain to rationalize putting the Raptor as my system drive?
Thanks, JOe K.
