I have two IBM 60GXP drives, one has failed totally and one is slowly fading into oblivion. I have a Asus GF3 that I tweeked just a little to far and has never worked the same since. I am planning to upgrade my entire system after the Clawhammer comes out, like in a year and a half or so. I need to replace the drives soon, end of May at the latest, and I need to replace the vid card soon as well. I was going to get a GF4 TI4600 untill the HD's went to trash, but now I can't afford both. I know Serial ATA is on the way in, but when will it become mainstream?? Do I go ahead and get top of the line or do I skimp now and save for the big overhall of my system??. I want one of the new Wester Digital drives with the 8mb of cache, but will it be worth the extra cash?? All I plan on doing is gaming, Visual Studio, Photoshop, and maby some 3D design. Could someone lead me in the right direction??
