HDD configuration for World of Warcraft

  1. Hi,

    We have just bought a new computer which has a 200Gb 7200rpm SATA drive, and a 74Gb 10000rpm SATA drive.

    On our other machine which has a similar config, the stuff on the 10000rpm drive is accessed noticeably faster - however, it's not used for Warcraft!

    I noticed on my old machine that the HDD was hammered in high population areas like Ironforge. However, I don't know if that was loading WoW files, swapping memory, or accessing Windows files.

    What would be the best way to install WoW? At the moment I'm think Windows and swap space on the 7200rpm and WoW on the 10000rpm. Or would swap be better off on the faster drive? I don't think it should have to swap too much as it has 2Gb of memory, but you never know.

    Any advice?
