Here's the deal, I'm tempted to have another go at SHIV. Yes, this is the second time I've been tempted to blow the dust off the game and have another go. But I want to help the game run as fast as possible with the rig I have at the moment.
But here is the problem, I have two hard drives on my PC and I know they are fairly old I would like to know which hard drive is better for game performance - or is it irrelevant where I put the game.
I only have 1Gb at the moment, and yes I do know my RAM situation is a bit lacking and I know 2GB is better but I'm trying to make do at the moment and helping the game run as fast as possible - you see, buying a house this summer has cancelled any upgrade plans for another year at the most.
Here is my system specs;
AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ running at 2.41GHz
1024MB RAM Corsair TwinX matching pair [edit : DDR3200]
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe mainboard
Asus EN7900 Top 256MB RAM
Windows XP Professional
SB Audigy 4
Hitachi Desk Star 250Gb 7,200rpm / SATA2 (90% free disk space) - Master Drive
Western Digital Raptor 74Gb 10,000rpm / SATA2 (55% free disk space) - Slave Drive
Both drives are over 12 months old, in fact I can't remember when I bought them, I do know the Raptor is the youngest out of the two.
With my set up does it really matter where I put the game?
Or, am I barking up the wrong tree?
Any help or comments would be appreciated, plus if anyone has any upgrade recommendations I would also appreciate that too, bearing in mind funds are tight at the moment
