View Full Version : 5400rpm vs. 7200 ?

I'm upgrading my 8600/G4 with a Sonnet ATA100 card and a new IDE drive. Can anyone tell me if there would be that much noticeable difference in speed between a 5400rpm drive and a 7200? Right now I'm looking at either Maxtor or Seagate, 20GB.

Hey riven2000,
Short answer: considerable. With todays prices as low as they are there is no reason to scrimp on essential performance. Get the 7200, anything slower is just that...slower.
