The fastest mechanical SATA hard drive (marketted to end users anyway) is the Western Digital Velociraptor 150gb 10K RPM. Sells for $230


Running an amazingly close second place for most read/write tasks is this:
The Seagate 7200.11 7200RPM 320GB


It goes for $65. It benches almost twice as fast for transfer rates than my 500GB Seagate 7200.10.
For $65 this really juiced up my computer. Perfect for an operating drive.

It even beat the velociraptor on one or two tests.

Charts:





My 500GB 7200.10 was way down the list at 65MB/sec lol

Thought some of you would wanna know.
But its only 150Gb.

Did you read anything I wrote, or did you just look at the pictures?
Or did you just stop reading after I mentioned the Western Digital drive?

The drive I posted is 320GB. 320GB is more than enough for an operating drive for your programs.
I am talking only about the 150Gb Hdd, had it been a 500gb or more then it would be good enough. Why not go for a 500GB hdd which comes for the same price and has decent performance. I bought a new hdd too a couple of days back and it also has a very good speed. its listed in your performance test ST3500320AS
