Greetings everyone, I recently purchased a used Western Digital Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB SATA-1 16MB Cache hard disk to use as my primary hard disk. I was using a Seagate 7200.1 500GB SATA-2 32MB Cache drive split into 2 partitions; one as the system drive and the other for storage, and can now use the Seagate exclusively for storage. The Windows 7 installation onto the Raptor went fine and so far no problems, but it appears as the Raptor is slower than the Seagate, at least according to Windows Performance Index. The Seagate received a score of 5.9 while the Raptor only received a score of 5.1. I wonder if this has to do with the Seagate's larger cache and SATA-2 interface. I feel a little disappointed as I was hoping to give the system a boost with a 10000rpm drive, but it seems as I have actually retarded it slightly. Oh well, I guess I should have saved up and purchased a new VelociRaptor instead!
