Gaming PCs: RAID-0 and You.

Today's competitive PC gamers are constantly looking for an advantage in the titles that they play.

Gaming PCs and Upgrading To A Solid-State Drive

Solid State Drives operate using a type of flash memory called NAND or "Negated AND" which is a type of logic gate that allows for the storage and access of data. Generally, the random access times of a SSD are as low as 0.1 ms with read latency times that are negligible due to the data being read directly from the storage location. Compare this speed to the average HHD random access time of 7 ms and the benefits of a SSD become clearer.
