|i have two hard drives, a 40GB, and an 80GB. the 40gb is my master.|
lately, my 80GB seems to turn off while i am using it sometimes. i hear a click, and like if i am playing an mp3, it pauses for a second, then comes back.
anyways, i am getting nervous about losing data, so i think i am going to upgrade my pair of drives.
right now, both drives have a 2MB cache. i am going to get at least 8mb cache drives next time, maybe 16.
but i was curious, are there peformance benefits from a bigger cache in games?
will it raise my 3dmark05 score?
if not, what benefits are there?
