What Speed HD Should I Pickup?

    I searched for this, didn't find anything.

    There are many RPMs out there for HDs. I was wondering what you recommend for the PS2 with HD Loader to prevent overheating and getting best performance.

    Does it really matter all that much what speed? I have an old Maxtor that is like 3200 or 4500 or something - would it work?

    I know Maxtor and Seagate seem to be the HD of choice, but my main concern was getting top performance for my money.

    Cheers!

    ok cool, but are the rpms going to mean faster load times in the PS2 environment??

    Just to let you know, I used 2 Maxtor hard drives with different rpms and found that there is a difference in loading times, 7200rpm WILL load your games faster than a 3200rpm hd on your PS2 with HDL...!?
