Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: one of the best mechanical drives out there.

Cons: its a mechanical drive.

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: quick to boot, processing load to spare. Skyrim, chrome, stream software (stream active), mumble, itunes, and steam bring it to 65 % load. the same setup would bring an i5 2500k to its knees.

Cons: not really a con: intel just needs to forget about integrated graphics or just keep it on the motherboards.

Intel 525 Series Lincoln Crest SSDMCEAC030B301 mSATA 30GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 30 gigs. can hold a 64 bit installation of windows 7 or 8.
Built for caching to mechanical drives. Cheap SSD.

Cons: only 30 gigs. Slow write speed.

Other Thoughts: This is a caching SSD. It has the lowest write speed of the 525 series, however it still writes faster than the fastest mechanical drives. Which is exactly how a caching drive should be built. It is a great upgrade from the Intel 311 20 gig SSD cache. If you are looking for a 525 series as a boot drive get the 64 gig or higher capacities. Those have higher write speeds and will handle better as a storage/boot device.
