    I have a question I had 2 WD blue hardrives both 320gb and both 32mb cache raid 0 for performance both pretty much fail at the same time many bad sectors.that can't be repair nomore . I purchase one 1th WD black hardrive 64mb cache and it seems kind of sluggish and slow at sometimes when come to read only. Not so much when write. My question is 64mb cache of a single harddrive better than two 32mb cache raid 0 better?

    The single drive won't be better than the two. The 64MB of cache and higher areal density will help, but it still won't be as fast as the two drives in RAID0.

    People with small SSDs either install one or two games only, or they RAID0 multiple SSDs, or they are stupid enough to just care about Windows booting a few seconds faster and still deal with most of their games/programs loading slowly.

    Yes thats true I know ssd are the best for performance and when i think comes to bench marking but Damn when technology is at its best they like to rip ppl/us off good. I hate to buy ssd for it low storage. Hopefully things will get cheaper. Lol
