    Well, with the 8MB cache you are going to gain preformance overall.

    Spend the extra cash and gove yourself a better performance boost!

    How can you argue with that?!!!

    Opus :D

    WD all the way around my friend!

    80GB for data and 40GB for OS and Apps!

    When I first got my WD 40GB I had a project that had used up 40% of my CPU...got the 40GB and it went down to about 20%!!

    That tell you anything!

    Opus :D

    I'm using a 120 WDJB with a dual XP boot, and a 180 WDJB for data.
    The data disk never bumps the meter in Nuendo with 24 tracks.
    Thanks Opus for the tips on the computer everything is working great.
