Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Not really... I think SSDs makes sense in a laptop (due to the lack of moving parts), but in your case I'd probably get Raptors instead. I argue they still are the best hard drives... But others might disagree...

That's what I suspected. Normal hard drives that spin fast and have a big cache seem to be the best compromise of speed and reliability still. I'm all for solid state becoming the norm but I just don't think they are there yet from what I have read.

Z68 Hybrid SSD

With the Z68 chip you listed in your specs you can use a SSD caching system - early reports are that this is worthwhile (note that I have not used it myself so I would encourage you to browse the net for reviews of it). Buy a small SSD and a decent mechanical drive and let the BIOS (or should I say UEFI) run the hybrid system.
