I’m upgrading my 3-yr. old PC desktop to a new system (my Intel P4 is getting kinda old:-)
Given that the new box will have an Intel Core-2 2.4 Ghz processor, Asus P5K-V mobo plus 4 GB DDR2 RAM, etc. etc, I have a question for the HD mavens out there:
Should I keep my two Seagate ST 37297 SCSI hard drives (70 GB/each, 10,000 RPM) and Adaptec SCSI card (Ultra 160) OR just get a new SATA HD (looking at a WD 150GB 10,000 RPM)?
I’ve had great performance and stability with the current configuration – but don’t want to pass up performance & (possibly) better speed with a new gen HD. Have never owned SATA – still in the dark ages – so would appreciate any suggestions or advice before I order the new (custom) system.
