Thread: Quick Question

  1. #1
    will i notice much of a difference between an 8mb cache and a 2mb cache? cuz i can get a western digital 40gb 7200rpm with 2mb cache for $53, or i can get one with an 8mb cache for $63. im on a really tight budget, and if i wont notice a difference im getting the 2mb one. please help.

    Yes. You'll notice.
    That is were the computer to store data before it can be used by the ram allowing faster and times that you will notice.

    united states, and im not ordering from any other website other then newegg.com if thats what ur thinkin. im prolly gonna go with the 2mb cache, just so i have more money to spend on a 9600pro, instead of a fx5600.

    You'd be taking a big hit to preformance for ten dollars. But it's your call, everyone will tell you to go with 8mb.

    right now i have really good system performance with a 512kb cache hard drive running at 66mb/s. so im not to worried about it, i was thinking gaming performance, but since im prolly not gonna notice to much a difference im gonna get the 2mb cache one (unless somebody gives me a really good reason to get the 8mb cache one).

    I went to a 8mb. catch and I think its great... things run a lot faster. I will never go back...


    The recover time from a online game is much faster...

    ill have to think about it... depends on if i can come up with the extra $10 for it. i just barely have enough to get the hard drive, the gfx card im gonna get (saphire 9600), and the memory im getting (another stick if kingston px2700 256mb), and 4 speeze case fans. so ill see what i can do, but im hoping for the 8mb cache if stuff is gonna exit faster, cuz my computer seems to have problems doing that (very long exit times...).
