Ok. Yeah at the most the only thing other than gaming I might have on my computer would be some music files. I just can't decide what to do. For some reason it feels wrong going with a basic HD vs. the two Raptors, but you guys say it won't make a big difference for gaming other than load times?

Default Re: WD Raptor Hard Drives and gaming

If you think u have enough storage space already then by all means buy a raptor...I think that if you stick windows on one you will notice a speed difference in the OS in general. Games access times will increase too. If you feel that your storage space needs upgrading then a WD IDE drive with 8MB cache I recommend highly because it's quiet, one of the fastest IDE drives available and reliable.
