I am looking for a second hard drive to transfer data to when I reformat my main drive and reinstall windows. I will also use it to hold large files. Anyway I currently have:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3250620AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
I think its this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148139
Well basically its a 16 MB cache 7200 RPM drive. I am looking for something faster. I think it might be "the slow link in the chain" sorta speak. Windows takes quite a long time to load and its only getting slower even though I have no adware / viruses and nothing other then whets required on startup and the HD has recently been defragged.
So can someone recommend me a faster hard drive around the 250 Gb. range from Newegg?
Also what is Perpendicular Recording and does it truly help make things faster?
I have the Gigabyte 965-DS3 mobo.
