i have one on my laptop, i like it, if you were moving from a 5400 rpm drive to a 7200 rpm then go for it, but if your already on a 7200rpm the difference is minimal
What do you guys think of these hybrid SSD drives? Worth it?

That's going to be my vacation (if you want to call it that) this year... sadly we get 5 weeks of paid time off per year + holidays but I will likely only get to take 1 to 2 weeks off.
i believe that im going to take this as my vacation time as well. going down there wednesday with david i suppose and im taking thursday and friday off. i havent really talked to david a whole lot about it though...
wow, our builds are not too far apart really.... and on a side note.... david.... thats too much porn
Here's my revised specs, nothing great:
- Core 2 Duo e6550 @ 2.4ghz (was overclocked to 2.9ghz but no more)
- Gigabyte Mobo
- 500W Antec Modular PS
- 4 Gigs (2x1) of Dual Channel OCZ 800mhz Ram (w/gold heatsinks)
- EVGA 8800GT 512 Meg Video Card
- 2 x 1TB Seagate Sata II Hard Drives (32 meg cache)
- 1 x 1.5TB Segate Sata II Hard Drive (32 meg cache)
- Asus 22x LightScribe DVD Rom/Writer
Yeah, I know, I have a lot of storage, lol. My 1.5 TB is chalk full already.
lol, so damn, Newegg has a 2TB on sale after discount code applied for $75!!!!!
It's a Samsung though, anyone have experience with those drives? I typically go Seagate only.
i see quite a few samsung drives, to be honest, you dont see a lot of them failing... but i too am a seagate fan, thats what im going to continue to put in my builds,
wow, formatting, there we go, lol... 80 gig drives? man, that blows, you know you can get a 250 gig now for cheaper than an 80 I noticed!
well. ive never been a storage hog, i dont keep anything on my computer anymore, so those 80s im only using prob 40gigs total,. thats between 2 os/s and a few games... as cheap as hd's are, if i ever needed the space, id prob get a friggin ssd and a 500gig conventional hd haha
Your post's brevity put me to shame. *sigh*
if it makes you feel any better, i had too look up the word brevity to see what it meant..
- 4gigs 800mhz ddr2
- core 2 duo 8400 3.00ghz clocked at 3.6
- 3 sata 80gigs in a raid 1 (stripe)
- 450watt fsp group p/s
- dvd burner
- antec 900 case
- asus p5n-d motherboard
nothing supreme, but it sure gets the job done
haha, i was 3 when that came out!
As I say, sounds sorta similar to this, great game back in the day...
lol @ system reqs...
Intel 80386, 4 MiB RAM, 1X CD-ROM drive, hard disk, VGA, Mouse, and sound card
It shows that they have focused heavily on the graphics from the original somewhat cartoony first game. I'm liking what I see. The first one was such a great simple game because there was nothing really like it at the time, will be interesting to see if the second has that same innovative groundbreaking feel to it.
as long as we get cake in the end, who cares about this game itself!
but srsly, you are exactly right, its going to be hard to beat the first one, and what more funny is that the first one wasnt even supposed to be as big as it was, it was just a test to see how people reacted to it
it was almost an accidental innovation lol.
and now we get a brand new, elongated version of that game, WITH multiplayer support. they did quite well with this.
will do boss
Post a the synopsis of the game too.
synopsis: portal was a groundbreaking game where you awoke in a test facility to a robotic voice, there is no one else but you and this voice over the intercom. the game is all about two portals, when you go through on you come out the other and vice versa, its quite hard to get your bearing correct sometimes, the game is completely 3d puzzle based, some fast paced and some are not, you will have to create these portals and get to the end point of each map.
portal 2 will include all new maps, and many more maps than the original did, and it will have co-op mode, you and a friend can create portals together to get each other across the map.
and the whole point of these games is so you can have your cake in the end
