Hard drive help please
Could anyone please give me some advice on which hard drive I should buy? My motherboard does not support SATA, so it will have to be an ATA-133 drive. My main question is: how important is cache buffer size? I was considering getting the Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 10 250GB ATA-133 with 16MB cache buffer. However, I do not necessarily need that much storage space, but does the 16MB cache buffer make it worthwhile? Would this hard drive be significantly better than say, a Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 10 160GB ATA-133 with 8MB cache buffer? Any help or recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.
