hard drive picks help

Recommended Posts

im gona be ordering 2 hard drives


and i was looking at theses



http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136284 32 cache



and i was looking at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136151 16 cache


so i was wondering is there a big difference from 16 to 32 cache? if there aint than i problee gona get the 16 because its cheeper.


also i be running them in raid and i was wondering with my current hard drives which is 2x160gbs pretty sure they 8cache and i got them in raid can i use them with the new hdds in raid?


well like have the 2x 1tbs in raid together than keep my current hdds intact as 2x160s.



i know i cant have all 4 hdds togther in raid because that would put the 1tbs down to 160gbs .


or do i have to run the 1tbs with out raid to run like that?

hmm maybe the best way is just not use the 160s? and use them in my other computer in raid sense 2tbs should be plenty i think on my main lol.


can i run the 160s in non raid while running the tbs in raid? in case i want the 160s for docs and programs?:)



tho i would like to copy the stuff i got on my 160s to the new drives thats gonna be in raid how would i do that?


cause if i have lets see the 1tbs up and running in raid than i pop in my 160s which is in raid will windows show them so i could copy stuff over or does raid needs windows running on that drive to work?
