The BarraCuda is a 2 TB hard drive for gaming that costs right around $50. Normally that would and should be a red flag, but Seagate has a reputation for quality performance, and it's one they meet admirably with this budget PC hard drive. In fact, it boasts the claim of fastest desktop hard drive due to its 6Gbps transfer compatibility.
This is a SATA hard drive that gleefully puts performance above any other consideration. A 7200 RPM speed is complemented by an exception 64 MB of cache. And while it sacrifices any illusions of quiet speeds or power saving features in the process, that's not what it was built for. This is a power option through and through, and the fact that it comes in at such a reasonable price ensures that it's an incredible steal for gamers who want to get maximum performance with minimum spending.
