I'm trying to order afew 1u / 2u servers from Dell but the question i'm in need of help is the hard disk is a very important factor for these servers i need the best performance an speed on read.
writing to these disks isn't a important part just the read is. these servers are going to be hosting gaming servers so when the map changes on a server the quicker the hard disk is the quicker the map changes! Just to give you an idea.
now which would be quicker the setup of the server so far is
Intel Xeon 5400 2.8Ghz Quad Core
the disk options are:
Sata-II 15K RPM 500GB
Raid 0 + 2x Sata-II 7.2RPM
Raid 0 + 2x Sata-II 10K RPM
