Question about hdd upgrade

#1CaptMurderfacePosted 4/17/2013 6:30:10 PM
I'm looking to upgrade my hdd and I'm trying to find the best option. So far I've seen a couple people suggest these:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007PFQ23C/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cd_asin_lnk

Can anyone tell me the difference or which is better? Or if anyone has any other suggestions.

Bigger cache is better.

Though I would recommend a 7200rpm (at least) or if possible solid state HDD (if you can afford it) if you're going to upgrade.

Thanks I have a few more questions.

1. I was told a 4gb thumb drive should be enough to back up everything (all I really have is save files.)Is that enough or do I need to get an external hdd?

2. Do I need to format a thumb drive?

3. When I do the back up is it going to try to back up the installed game data? Do I need to delete those?

If I were you, I would choose to 'Copy' save files to the thumb drive. When I upgraded my HDD, I chose 'Back Up' to the thumb drive. All of the movies and TV episodes I had would not play- I got a message saying that the copyright data had expired.

I lost like 10 movies and maybe 50 TV episodes; couldn't watch them.
