The Microcenter in Overland Park. Did you check the OEM section in the BYOC part of the store? They had an entire rack of OEM drives.livingfortoday said:Reeeeally? Where was this? The Microcenter near me has no such deals, and I could use some more drives...
Are you familiar with Metcalf road? Its at the corner of Metcalf and 95th Street, in the same shopping plaza as Michael's. There is also a Borders and some other stores over there as well.mattcube64 said:I didn't know there was a Microcenter in Overland Park. I've always wanted to go to one, but have never seen one. I'm in Blue Springs, and could probably take a long drive this weekend.
As long as you never hit 150MB/s sustainable transfer speeds, there is absolutely no reason to worry. Just because the bandwidth is available doesn't mean a certain device uses it.hal0n said:i have those hitachi drives and they are a pita because you have to use some windows software to enable 3gbs mode... they ship in 1.5gbs mode. i would really recommend getting something with jumpers.
Depends. The rather large cache nowdays could probably do more then sata1. But yeah sustained bandwidth is well well below the bus speed. Even with ata-100 there was no real bottleneck.Pressure said:As long as you never hit 150MB/s sustainable transfer speeds, there is absolutely no reason to worry.

Let me be clear on one thing, current hard drive designs do not come near the theoretical bandwidth.
