Xbox Hard Drive Question [rpm Speeds]
Posted 11 August 2005 - 12:26 AM
I was wondering, does the RPM speeds of a hard drive greatly affect the speed of the games and programs loading off of it?
For example, I want to put a 40GB HD into my Xbox, but I wanted to know if i'm better off using a 5400 RPM HD or a 7200 RPM HD.
PS: The hard drives are:
Maxtor DiamondMax 8 [40GB] 7200 RPM

Maxtor Fireball 3 [40GB] 5400 RPM

I would like to say completely gone, but in some parts one can see a MS or so of textures loading in the arbiter mission.
I also found that Halo 1 loads faster off the HD then when using the disk.
And as for IDE cables, you think it really makes a difference? Hmmm I might just isntall some black IDE cables that come with my mobo then.
