Is this still much of an issue? I am buying a new SATA2 320 GB NCQ hard drive and am trying to decide on my partitioning scheme.
I would love just one big fat C drive to be honest, but I will be running some HD intensive apps so this may be a bad choice. I will be using NTFS.
So basically looking to hear from some folks who have experience with similar drives and what they think the best partitioning scheme would be to allow me to have as large of partitions as possible without performance impacts.
