Swapping Hard Drives


Recommended Posts

from what i've researched on the net recently, it seems to boil down to cache sizes and rpm speeds, etc. for HDD's. here is a link comparing them

i'd personally say the 7200 rpm drive will probably have a similar cache size but will  work just a tad bit faster. when i upgraded an old desktop from a 5400rpm to a 7200 rpm drive i only saw a slight increase though, such as instead of a 1 minute boot it was around 45 seconds. but hey its still an increase

edit sorry too many numbers...got em fixed now  :lol:
