Addons on same hard drive or separate

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,i going to have a new hard drive added on to my com. So having two physical drives. How do i place things for best performance. I've heard of tips to separate fs and windows on separate drives. i'm also thinking of placing add ons on separate drive from fs to maximise data performance. how should it be done?BTW. i might also be able to get new cpu, second hand. Would a .2ghz improvement be worth the hassle to install a new cpu?

Starting with CPU. If they are exactly the same in all other respects, I would not expect that you would see appreciable difference with 200mhz.As far as the drives. I have my OS on one drive in its own partition, games on a seperate drive. I just think it is a cleaner way to run a system. Having had FS loaded in both configurations, with the OS and on seperate a seperate drive, in my experience I really didn't see a difference. I would very much doubt that having FS and addons on seperate drives would help at all.

I'll try to move my add ons to the new harddrive tomorrow and see if it will help with anything. I hope it will resolve blurries/stutters as i read that one of the causes is due to data bottlenecks like HDDs. So fs having it on bandwidth on one drive and addons on another should theorically improve the situation. Lets experiment.

FS is a strange beast. The same set-ups will work differently on different hardware configurations. Hope it works out for you. Report back and lets know. Good luck :-beerchug
