Here are some charts of Hard drive speeds and how they compare to others. The thing is that for the price of some western digital 16mb cashe hard drives you can get a seagate 32mb cashe hard drive so if thats the case then why not. I have a seagate 16mb cashe 320gb and i built a rig for my cousin that has a 640gb Seagate 32mb cashe, i didnt really notice a huge difference but for the price i was able to get a bigger hard drive with more cashe for less then what newegg was charging for a western digital 16mb.Hard drive charts
