New Hard Drive

But the Barracuda is an Ultra ATA/100. Doesn't that 100 mean it has a maximum bandwidth of 100 megabytes per second? I've seen others with Ultra ATA/133, 133 megabytes per second. Also, the Barracuda only has a 2-megabyte buffer. I've seen ones with 8-megabyte buffers. Are you sure Barracudas are the best, or just the best value? Again, to anyone else who posts, I'd like the fastest and best drive out there that doesn't use SCSI. Thanks Pasty and anyone else who replies.
Thanks, HandyBuddy, but I'm not sure that's big enough. It's only 36 gigabytes, right? But that's probably the fastest hard drive out there. If it were only bigger, that'd probably be the one I'd want? Thanks again. Does anybody have any other ideas?


You didn't say whether it had to be ATA or SATA.

And yes, you should absolutely get one with an 8Meg cache.

And - this is in the wrong forum. :eek:
Hey, thanks, rnielsen151. That's music to my ears. The Raptors seemed like an awesome drive during my last few days of researching. I guess I'll wait until November unless somebody else knows something. Thanks, everybody!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
