    Default Harddrive RPM

    I am looking at building a new PC and am interested in the following
    1. The difference in speed between 7,500 and 10,000 RPM drives. Is it worth it?
    2. Who makes a graphics card that supports two digital displays?

    Thanks, Jackiex

    You're looking at that 36gig WD hard drive, aren't you? It's probably nice to be able to say you have a 10k rpm hard drive, but hardly worth the money.

    Two digital displays? You need a card by Matrox. Their Parhelia is a very good card.

    Lo.

    I know a few people with the Western Digital Raptors and they absolutely love them, though I know other people that think they're a tad too loud.

    For the graphics card I think you're pretty much stuck with matrox (that is a good thing) if you're wanting the two digital connections. Though most cards now have one analogue and one digital port so you can run dual monitors.

    1) Not worth the price to get a 10,000 rpm hdd, not with their storage capacity anyway

    2) Here's another option for you 3DLabs Wildcat VP880 Pro

    The 10,000rpm drive could be worth it speed wise though... but of course SCSI would be nicer.

    it all depends on what sort of system you are building. kinda piontless on an elcheapo budget system but very nice on a high end pc. raid5 with 3 raptors would be so nice and far cheaper than scsi.

    Waste of money. Get the new PuRam technology ("hard drive" as a big ram disk). Will set you back like $5000 atm.

    if by "two digital displays" you mean something will dual DVI ports im sure ive seen cards based on the GF4MX chipset with dual DVI. Some of the ATI All-In-Wonders also have dual DVI.
