In part 1, we concluded that if you want to play new games at the highest
detai, you better be prepared to buy both a high end graphics card and at
least 2 GB of memory (assuming you already have a fast enough processor).
Having 2 GB of memory not only eliminates most memory related stuttering,
but also offers faster load times as well. But it won't solve all
stuttering. In part 2, we take a more focused look on storage related
stuttering - mostly the ones due to level loads and game saves. It's obvious
the hard drive is the bottleneck, so we threw in two 80 GB Maxtor Diamond
Max Plus SATA hard drive and configure them as one 160 GB RAID array. The
results we got were pretty interesting, RAID 0 do offer some tangible
benefits (performance, load times and save times) but it looks like our RAID
array is not fast enough to provide stutter free gaming..
