I agree an SSD would be good, but I think he wants to improve his performance in games, in which case a more powerful CPU and GPU would be what he needs. There isn't much difference between gaming on a HDD vs an SSD, but I agree, for general responsiveness an SSD is the key. I like the Crucial M4 myself, but there are other good ones too. Maybe an upgrade for you down the line, Wolfe?SSD. Probably will yeild the best for responsiveness in the system, no one seems to have mentioned this yet. OCZ or something...cheap
Yeah I'm with Wolfe here. I don't like RAID-0 and really the speed difference between a single fast HDD and two in RAID-0 is negligible, and the drives are mire likely to fail in RAID-0 and overall it's just more expensive. I know byteninja is on about RAID 0+1 but I'd still just get a single large drive.but I do not think I will do 0+1 as yall are on about speed and that needs at least 3 dives. I can get a single 3TB drive cheaper than getting another 2 1TB for 0+1.
