SSD will be way faster regardless.

Honestly HDD's are old fashioned now. They shouldn't be used as a boot drive period.

Post Re: 10K HDD vs SSD
My sentiments exactly ... no more mechanical hard drives for operating systems here. Just two weeks ago I built a system for my son and though I wanted to get him an SSD, I couldn't. So I went with a WD Black Caviar 640GB HD. The comparison to my twin C300 64GB SSD's (RAID 0 on Intel ICH10R) was like I had just drove through a pool of molasses! I couldn't believe how slow it was. But my son is only 14, so I don't think he'll notice any difference in speed. But Comixion ... you're about the only one in here that hasn't yet jumped on the solid state bandwagon. Get off the pot!!

Well I been busy tying up loose ends at work so I been out of the mix and have'nt been on my pc much. In 3 days I'll have all the time in the world.
So would that SSD with the WD black be fine? I see WD has several model numbers on those blacks. Are the 64mb cache models that much preferable?

I would personally go with at least the Agility series, though ideally Vertex.

Post Re: 10K HDD vs SSD
Since we're on the topic of SSD's, can you guys school me on how I can migrate over to an SSD with my current RAID0 setup? I'd like to keep the two in RAID0 as storage and get a 240gbish SSD for booting/gaming/applications.

The reason for my delay in switching over to the new world is Windows... Prior to getting Win7 Pro-64 (upgrade edition), I had the OEM builder's edition of Vista Ultimate, so because of the layered installation, I just avoided any HDD/SDD upgrade all together.

If any of you guys could school me on the easiest way to transition over to an SSD while keeping the (2x) WD "Black" HDD's, I'd really appreciate it!

...I know, I know, I can google it all, but I rather keep this within this small community. I trust you guys over the folks on other sites. :lol:

I would strongly advise just doing a clean install of Windows on the SSD. Leave your RAID0 untouched and then just delete the Windows folder and whatever else you don't need on it once the SSD is up and running.

Yes, inspite of a faster connection, the SSD at 3.0 GB/s will be more fast. No present drive can max out the 6.0 Gb/s information of SATA III
Bandwidth is only aspect of the speed equation though. Rotating latency ads a few milliseconds to every disk drive accessibility, a SSD does not have any rotational latency.
SSDs however do have some issues handling little random writes, which becomes smaller their speed benefits in that particular place.
