How is This as a scratch disk?

Went to 4 trusted shops yesterday and all out-of-stock for most of the Intel processors except like.. Celeron.. No one dares to stock-up at the moment..

i-RAM? It works for a scratch disk... But then, there's no point. If you need that kind of performance, you'd likely be dealing with very large files and 4GB isn't enough for your scratch. If you're not dealing with such large files or large number of files, why do you want to pay for an i-RAM just for your scratch disk?Originally Posted by Andy Ang
Better-off spending on a PCI-E 2 port SATA RAID controller and raiding a pair of Seagate Barracuda 7200.10's. Still have leftover $$$ for a nice & fast 50mm prime.
Thanks for the Info. Look like good to wait till Sep.Originally Posted by Firefox
Keep the info. coming. Greatly appreciated!
BTW, the E6300/ 6400 are not Conroes. They're Allendales. They come with 2MB L2 cache rather than the 4MB that the Conroes have. However, the performance difference between a Conroe and Allendale with the same clockspeed is minimal. Note: You won't find them at the same clockspeed.Originally Posted by Kevin
It's just that the testing in reviews were done with Engineering Samples with unlocked multipliers.
Thanks, aware of that. Since I am not getting a Performance PC so is OK with me.Originally Posted by Firefox
But, read some review that show test results of E6300 better than 930 so thot might as well go foe it since it is within my budget and it take electricity and generate less heat. Do they clock the E6300 at higher clock speed to show a better performance than 930?
