I need to get a Boot hard drive for my computer. I want a hard drive and not an SSD.

It looks like I can get a WD Raptor with 10,000 RPM speed, but SATA II

or

I can get a 7200 RPM drive with SATA III.

My motherboard has SATA III.

Question: Which would be faster?

10k @ Sata II

or

7.2k @ Sata III

I'd say depends on what you are going to use PC for. If the data transfers are going to be more towards a large number of small packets, then the 1ok rpm might have the egde. Whereas if you are talking about large / bulk file transfers, then the SATAIII might be best.
