I wasn't sure if this would be the right section to post this question. I have done searches of hard drive questions, and this seems like the only place to ask this question.
I want to add a second separate hard drive for videos that I'll be recording. I'm not into the whole commentary thing, and I'm thinking about buying this hard drive for gameplays only. I try to do walkthroughs on games that can be helpful to someone trying to get through a part in a game http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136769
My current hard drive that has my OS on it. Games run at about 30 fps with Dxtory on, and sometimes starts randomly stuttering when I turn it on to record my games, and I heard that saving games on the drive that has the OS installed on can cause FPS drops http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148612
I really care about the best quality videos out there, so I try to strive for 1080p videos, but if the write speed is only around 80+mb/s, I can deal with 720p. Not good at figuring this stuff out.
Also, my budget would be around $70. I record hours of gameplay videos, and I could leave it on the drive for weeks before deleting the files. Would this hard drive be a good choice for this? Thank you!
