Cache size in Hard Drives

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by ernie entwhistle, Jul 12, 2004.

  1. I note that the current generation of new IDE hard drives are offered with
    2mb and 8 mb cache.
    Would I really notice the difference if I paid the higher price for the
    8mb? (Athlon 2600+ , MSI KT4-AV-L and 512mb RAM)

    Yes, it is definitely worthwhile.
