    Sad to say is Intel now,their chips are slowly overpowering the once affordable and good AMD cpu that we used to play with. Even Intel pricing and performance are much better nw

    Mines alive after 2 years and counting, contrary to what newegg posts and I used it daily for at least 7 - 10 hrs. On gaming nights it usualy runs to 12-14 hours.

    The seagate hybrid is indeed faster than our regular HDD but its speed is still limited when compared to SSDs. And Its very very distinct when youre loading online games. Hybrids are useful for situations where you have space for only one device.
    Else If possible you should think about getting an SSD and a regular HDD for storage.

    Thats just my personal experience over the last 2 years.

    actually, instead of hybrid hdd maybe you wanna check out
    Intel Z68 Chipset & Smart Response Technology?
    u pair up a ordinary hdd, but with a ssd as a cache device, im using it right now, and its great. u can read up here:

    AnandTech - Intel Z68 Chipset & Smart Response Technology (SSD Caching) Review

    Like that I can buy a relatively inexpensive 60gb ssd, and boost the speed of my hdd to ssd levels (never take timer or anything, but the feeling of speed is similar)

    Get Asrock Xtreme mobo they have the function of using RAMs as cache; spares your SSD to function more of a drive. (RAMS are lifetime warranty)

    But at the end of the day its still caching right?
    Better off just using the SSD as a boot and OS drive.
    Just my two cents.

    well, to me i have to disagree about using them separately.

    These are just my personal pros and cons, i have used a 60gb crucial m4 as a os drive+applications as while as a srt caching device

    Pros:
    -U spend less $ for similar performance as a ssd
    (it lowers the price-performance ratio alot, provided you have plans for a ordinary hdd)

    -U need not worry about the lack of capacity
    (unless u have $ which renders the first 2 points moot)

    Cons:
    Nothing, i wouldnt go back to using them separately. 1 con may be that u need to set up ur os in raid, but that's it.

    Depends on your application.

    If you need the processor, then choose Intel.

    you want to game better or watch movies, AMD is better because of its stronger GPU

    The i7 is faster & nVidia has better drivers than ATI.
