HD??? sorry, no idea...



i`m upgrading soon, this will be my new specs:

I7 930
Asus P6TD Deluxe
6GB PC16000 OCZ Platinum
XFX Radeon 5770 xxx
WD Caviar Black 500 GB, 7200 Rpm, 32 MB

it should be above 7 the next time I check in, but now i`m thinking of getting an SSD...

is this useful?

The specs look great, but the 500 WD Caviar will prevent you from getting past a 5.9 score. Get a good Intel SSD and that will put you over 7.
i`ve already changed it to this one:

WD Caviar Black 1 TB, 7200 Rpm, 64 MB, Sata III/600

just because most SSD`s are connected via Sata II, and thus the speed of your SATA connection is the bottleneck.
if i really want a good ssd setup, i would have to buy one with a PCI connection, and man, those things are just a little over my budget.

my new rig is already putting me back about €1.800, and that`s no pocket change...

and the second change is that i`m now going for 12 GB ram...

actually there are only a few ssds that can fully take avantage of the Sata 3 speed in the market right now
that caviar black wont give you as much boost as a sata 2 ssd (as you already know)
if you really want speed look at the pci-e ram disk implementations, those will last you and heck are they fast...

maybe in the near future there will be some affordable SSD`s that can take advantage of Sata III, untill then i`ll be using the WD so at least my pc isnt as slow as my current rig (2 years ago it was about the fastest you could get, time flies when your having fun)...

but your absolutely right that an SSD belongs in my new rig (not only for the WEI ofcourse)

Lol. That´s funny. No is not weird, the last one will always be 5.9 if you have a 7.2k RPM hard drive or higher. The only way to achieve it higher, is by getting a SSD

That seems to be the average score for non-solid state drives, unfortunately my low is on my CPU, I wouldn't mind having your numbers.

Sort of a bummer how a RAID-0 Setup sores the exact same as a standard single drive setup - or else I would be right at ~7.3avg
