Default 10,000 Rpm Hdd

So, I've heard these are " a lot faster" than the 7200's, but its only like 3800 RPM faster, and how much of a difference does that make? like in games? is it a whole lot faster? where would a 10,000 rpm hdd's speed come into play compared to a 7200?

Well a lot of people tell me it speeds up your boot up, but to me its not worth the cash. I would just get 2 7200'rpm harddrives and throw them into raid 0..

Raid 0 is when you use 2 hard drives for max performance. You get two identical dirves and set them up in raid 0. Now what this does is all the information you are saving is striped half of it goes to one hard drive and the other half goes to the other hard drive. So when your computer goes to get the programs or water both hard drives are working at the ssame time giving theinfo so there for its way faster. Raid 1 is where you use 2 hard drives, and the second one is a identical one to the 1st. Everything you do to the 1st hd happens to the 2nd. Mainly for protection use only...Hope that helps
