I would hate to say you contradicted yourself, but you mentioned that my RAID was helping with my score, yet you state a faster/bigger HD would not.
I disagree as both in fact increase speed.
It is well known that the transfer on a 250GB 7.2k drive is a bit faster than a 100GB 7.2k due to density. It may not make a difference, but they are indeed faster. Fast enough to make me sway my pair of 160's for a pair of the new 320's real soon...
Now if I wasn't taking my kiddies to the carnival today, I would probably already be installing XP on my 200GB and see what it can do. Or should I use my 64GB SSD that I have laying around? The SSD will mimick the speed of raid much better than the 200GB
I also joined the Extreme Overclocker's Forum, and they were shocked a lappy can hit 15K... They also told that I should be able to pump 17K with the same clock settings in XP... As they SWEAR that Vista has a 2K hit. I would have to agree from my basic knowledge, but, My Vista is tuned to all hell.....
Guess we will see!
I still think NBF should hold a '06/Vantage contest for a prize or 2... They have enough sponsors I think to handle it!!! (suggestion, and would be fun). Just make sure you have the nice disclaimer so the noobs dont cry when they burn their machines.....
Anyway I am off to play with my kids.
