A user playing a game on a gaming PC with a standard EIDE 5400 RPM hard drive finds the performance unsatisfactory. Which hard drive upgrade would improve performance while providing more reliability and more energy efficiency?

  • a 7200 RPM EIDE hard drive
  • a 7200 RPM SATA hard drive
  • a 10,000 RPM SATA hard drive
  • an SSD
    Explanation:

    Games require a lot of storage. In order for the computer to load and run games quickly, a fast hard drive will need to be installed. To obtain best performance an SSD (Solid-State Drive) will perform faster than an EIDE drive or a SATA drive.
