Default I Have questions about Hard drives

do you guys have any weblinks about loading time in seconds of softwares and games using different hard drives with and without RAID and etc.

Could you guy tell me a bit about how different hard drive and setup will help your computer experience?

Send a message via AIM to Anphrax

Make sure to check out reviews, make sure the hard drive is not known for screw ups or freezes. If your really looking for more speed I would get RAM... but meh.
Sig privileges back.

I love you sig santa :D

I was asking for a weblink that shows graphs of partiular softwares or games loading times in seconds with different drives and different setups.

Not the techical specs of the drives cuz that wouldnt tell me the "REAL LIFE" benefit of the drive. I dont know how to translate techical specs to real life preformance :P

Although they update this site rather infrequently it still has some good benchmarks in their reviews.
