[QUOTE=Epona;2604820]Thanks Mr Belvedere, I won’t even fill 1tb as I don’t store anything on it - it gets put on external drives and erased. Confused though, what does my transfer speed have to do with internet speed? It doesn’t use the internet, unless you meant to say download speed?[/QUOTE]
My apologies, i was sure you meant the transfer download speed.
For network transfer speed, it is beneficial to have a 1 Gbit network. It’s not that pricey. This means 1 Gbit Network Interface Cards (NIC) in your machines, 1Gbit switches and UTP cables certified for 1Gbit througput (like type Cat 6), For wireless the highest standard today is Wifi 802.11n, which is 300MBps at max.
If you want to have the highest possible transfer speed inside your computer, then i’d suggest SATA 3 SSD harddisks or SATA harddisks with the highest possible RPM (10k rpm) and throughput. USB 3.0 for external devices.
