I need to make a fast, very fast decision on a replacement OS drive that crashed. I only need 500GB, but could go smaller, and want the drive to be inexspensive, dependable, and FAST.
I have a gigabyte UD3R motherboard.
24 Gigs Corsaid 1066 1333 Dominator RAM
i7 920 CPU o'c' from 2.6 to 3.4
Someone said I should go fo the Hitachi Deskstar?
I've already been warned not to fall for Sata II or Sata III hype, but I'm not sure about cache size? 16, 32, 64. And I was told the density of the disk in ration to the RPMs is most important.
So I've got four hours before I MUST BUY for overnight delivery!
Thanks, guys (and gals)
