    Default Sata Drive

    Need some advice I am going to wait on a SSD drive but want to install a fast sata hard drive that is dependable as well as fast, what would be your recommendation on such a drive and what size would it be I would like at least 1TB if thats at all possible but would settle for speed over size if that was not an option.

    what about the 300GB WD Velociraptor seems to be a good price at the moment?

    I used a 300GB Velociraptor as my boot drive and cheap 1TB disk for 'everything else'. I've always been impressed with the performance of the VR, albeit a little noisy. I've since bought two SSDs (one boot and one...'some of everything else', like GTA4) and to be honest, based on my basic usage (watching movies, playing games, putty), I haven't noticed that much difference in speed, although everything does seem...smoother (and a lot quieter). With my SSDs as my primaries and my 1TB disk as bulk storage, my VR is a little bit taskless. So if you're going to get a large drive and SSD anyway, you may want to skip the VR completely.
