I'm currently in the process of building my first self built and am having trouble deciding on a primary hdd. I'm not going with a ssd, because it's common knowledge that ssd's wear out within a year or two. However, I have heard mixed reviews about fast (10k+ rpm) hdd's; some say they're junk, some say they're good. Here is my current build

NZXT Switch 810-removeable filters, closeable vents, full tower, bottom psu

ASUS Sabertooth 990fx AM3+

Zotac GTX 570 1.2gb

AMD FX 6100 6x3.3ghtz

2x4gb ddr3 1886 (not sure what brand)

Seagate Barracuda 2tb 7200rpm sata iii secondary hdd

Primary hdd-not sure;see above but sata iii, 200-300 gb,

1gb wifi, built in; not sure what brand

LG bluray reader

If you have owned or do own a fast (10k+ rpm) hdd please tell me about it; ie how long, short review, model, what you use it for.

You post the very same question albeit worded differently on March 2nd http://www.geekstogo...pm-hdds-needed/ and February 29th http://www.geekstogo...92#entry2126892

Duplicating topics is unhelpful and may lead to confusion if you receive conflicting guidance, this topic will be closed so please continue at your other thread, thank you for understanding.

Topic closed for duplication.
