Well pretty simple question. I like the concept of the SSHDs with their faster speed and i've been specifically looking at this one: Amazon.com: Seagate Laptop Thin 500 GB Solid State Hybrid Drive SATA 6Gb/s 64 MB Cache 2.5 Inch ST500LM000: Computers & Accessories
However after reading tons of reviews I've seen a lot of complaints that because of the only 8GB flash once thats not being used the drive is slower than a regular 7200 pm since it's 5400. and well that makes perfect sense.
So now I'm thinking that that's gonna end up not being the best solution for my machine. I'd love to get SSDs but just way to expensive. My plan was to buy two of those, one for windows and basic programs and a second for my games and photoshop, illustrator, indesign.
So first question is are these still good for desktop, or will I be better off with a standard HDD for the 7200 RPM.
And the second question is probably simpler. Is it better to have windows on it's own drive or is a partition fine? Looking at either buying two fast 500gbs or a single 1tb and then splitting it 400/600 for windows/games+programs.
Probably noobish questions but thanks to everyone in advance.
