Vista's prefetch system where it tried to populate 1.5GB - 2GB of my available 4GB at startup kicked the last breath out of my 500GB seagate HDD.
I would not want to go through this Hard drive torture again by loading 6GB every time I started up my computer :nutkick:
The 60 version had both the PS2 cpu(emotion engine) and gpu so it had perfect PS2 backwards on all games
80Gb only has the CPU(emotion engine) so it uses the RSX to emulate the PS2 GPU which give the PS3 backward compatibility on Most PS2 games but not all.
40GB doesn't have PS2 cpu or gpu so...
