    The cache is built into the hard drive but you can't change it. The JB series of Western Digital hard drives have an 8MB cache, just about everthing else has 2MB (or smaller depending on the age).

    RAID is combining 2 hardrives on a special controller and stripping data across both making the 2 really 1 larger hard drive and combining both caches leads to a faster data transfer again. :smokin:

    flaco, I do not know why scores are lower than yours...it seems odd. But I have read either in this forum or in others that the harddrive test in 3dmark is less than acurate at time. So....who knows! :thumb:

    I have a maxtor in my AMD box & a Quantum in my P4 box - I didn't expect either to score very high - but 475? that sucks.

    Maybe it's time to pick up a WD w/the 8mb cache.....or go SCSI :D

    I used to be a hardcore SCSI user. I though I would never use IDE….well, now I do not see the point of SCSI. You spend more $ for less space, and the drives are not that much faster. You can get an 80 gig 8mb WD drive for $110…..so nice!! Oh so nice!
