My System Specs

Default

I went with exactly that short-stroked setup for Behemoth. 4x 7200.12 500Gbs. 10% short stroked = 200Gb. Yes, I notice the access times a little, but considering the throughput (which I do notice) and the cost (Half the price of SSDs or less) im happy with my desicion. Its just my opinion, but i'm waiting till SSDs reach reasonable $/Gb ratios before really investing in them.
