Default More newbie questions (fewer questions this time)

1. Whats faster, a single hard drive with seek time of 3.3ms (10,000RPM), or 2 hard drives with a seek time of 8.5ms (7,200RPM) with Raid 0? How much faster?

2. How much faster would 2 hard drives with 10,000RPM and Raid 0 be then a single hard drive of the same kind. (HD has 3.3ms seek time)

3. Is water cooling nessissary on AMD processors?

4. If I have more RAM then the entire game uses in Disk Space will the entire game just be stored in the RAM?

1: A single 10000 RPM drive would be limited by only being able to send 150MB on the cable. 2 7200 RPM drives would be able to theroatacly move 150MB (SATA) each meaning 300. The 10000 RPM drive would still find stuff 2ms quicker

3: Watercooling is very unnessary on AMD's since they run pretty cool now and become unstable before they reach their thermal limit on a good heatsink and fan
