    rpm and sata Gb/s are two different things...you can also get 10,000rpm hdds with 6Gb/s transfer rate(USB 3)......

    ---------- Post added at 00:39 ---------- Previous post was at 00:38 ----------

    out of the two i think the 7200rpm one is better because 10,000rpm hdds are a bit expensive like the velociraptor.....

    @ infracted, whatever you buy, you wont reach that theoritical speed of 3gb/s. right now only ssd can perform closer to 3gb/s.

    10000RPM HDD should easily be faster than the 7200RPM SATA3 HDD.

    way better to purchase a SSD drive rather than wasting money on a 10,000 rpm hard rive.

    Better get an SSD. @SinsterFahim bro its SATA3 not USB3. A SATA3 hardrive will never even break the SATA2 Speeds so its useless kinda. If u can't get an SSD then raid dual 500GB 7200 RPM HDDs. Much better performance.

    It depends on the platter density, drive head seek speed and some other factors as well. For example, even a regular 2TB 5400RPM SATA 2 HDD will be faster than a 36GB 10K WD Raptor. However, a 300GB WD Velociraptor will beat the fastest 2TB Sata 3 HDD.

    As others have said, better to get an SSD as a boot drive and regular 2TB's for storage unless youre uber rich, in which case you can get 600GB Velociraptors for storage and SSD's for boot drives.

    It means, normal sata 3 with 7200rpm is useless?

    All you need is, a SATA III port in your mobo! thats all! & yes your mobo do have 2 SATA III ports. Which are run by Marvell controller! So, you need to setup the driver 1st! that will do the job!
