not bad, only 8 mb cache tho. great price for 200 gigs
yeah im goin to buy two of them and use RAID 0
is it easy to set up a sata HD? cause itll be my first one i ever purchased. how do i do it>? lol
i haven't done it yet ether, it cant be that hard. just install the RAID drivers when you install windows
lol k like right after i uninstall windows? or during ?
BTW EVERYONE ALL PARTS ARE ORDERED!
Honestly i dont know much about this raid stuff...Sata drives are easy, well at least at my job they are. The only problem i have is connecting the PSU sata cable into the HDD. Other than that I think its easy.
when you boot up from a win XP cd it will ask you if you want to install any RAID drivers
For the last year, year and a half maybe longer, all the single (non-raid) sata drives that I have set up on machines have been detected via XP with no driver install needed. Not saying all, but most motherboards now do not need the sata driver to detect a sata drive. Raid is another thing
That was me that recommended that. And I can say that CPU, Memory and Motherboard are very good for the price. Those parts should do wonders.
hahah thanks guys.. my pc should be coming in soon. cant wait to build!
