Best Cheap Harddrive for Games

November 24th, 2012

I’d like to know what the cheapest 7200 rpm hardrive is that’s good for games. Space isn’t really an issue, maybe 160gb minimum.

Needs to have at least 1t of space and make little noise and stay relatively cool and under about 80 dollars.

To pick the best hard drives for gaming PC, we need to look at the main criteria that will affect the performance of a hard disk.

Generally, desktop hard drives can be installed in either 2.5″ or 3.5″ internal drive bays. Usually desktop HDDs spin at three different speed, 5400, 5900 and 7200 RPM which can be connected to motherboard by IDE/SATA cable. Also there are 10,000 and 15,000 RPM enterprise hard drives for workstation/server computers which are more expensive and usually have Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) connector.

Go to amazon and newegg and search for what you want. A lot of people like WD black drives for their 5 year warranty.
