    Step up fer yer Internet Speed Test

    it is really unrealistic (for what I pay). I just got luck at that moment I guess. Maybe they were testing something, I clicked on speedtest on right time It should be around 25-40 mb/s maximum (I guess)

    I don't think I have this fast download speed but somehow test resulted like this edit: tested again, and result is even more weird

    Buying/building a new PC

    It is just my personal opinion. Hopefully other techies in the forum will share their opinions too. Than you will have an easier decision. WD Black series are working great with their 32mb caches. Even blue series are more than enough for most users. I was able to restore data from hdds, but I never able to recover anything from raid 0 configured harddrives. As long as you have your backup periodically, it shouldn't be a huge issue but still I like to be secure with my data.

    I don't believe and trust any raid configurations if the raid card is not server level quality. Raid 0 is too risky for a performance difference. If one of the hdd fails, you loose everything. I have same hdd like you have (WD Black 640gb) and I never felt it is running behind on any application or a game. It is fast enough for any applications I used so far. But I love raid 5 capabilities on servers.

    After your topic's inspiration , I started to read more about SSD drives and find out read/write speeds are very various. On newegg it shows each speeds and make sure you get the faster one. it will make huge difference. And Dane-Elec brand wasn't the best one out there. Read speed is good enough but write speed is slower than most of them.

    I got a newegg.com coupon code for SSD drive. Not sure if it is a good brand or not. Never used SSD yet. http://img38.imageshack.us/I/screenshot003lp.jpg/ I think this code is good for next 10 days or so.

    Exactly They speculate people something to believe or talk about for a long time, and while everyone is busy talking about it, politicians robs the people
