    Less than Php1k. Just make sure na tama yung kukunin mo (PCI or PCI-E), depende sa available expansion slot/s ng mobo.

    Ah thanks sir, tingin nalang ako sa gilmore this sahod siguro.
  • I'm pretty fed up with wasting my money buying slow flash drives. Most flash drives have class 4 speeds (similar to a class 4 SD card i.e. 4 MB/s write speed). Its so boring waiting for gigs of data to be written onto the drive

    With sd cards the class is labeled but with flash drives there is no label. you have to google for reviews and who knows if the product available in the phils is exactly the same as in the reviews

    so I'm thinking of only buying usb 3.0 flash drives. I'm guessing that even with a USB 2.0 computer usb 3.0 flash drives would be faster, hopefully getting class 10 or better speeds because the manufacturers wont use slower flash ram inside. Am I right?

    10MB/s sequential write speed (on a USB 2.0 port) is actually pretty easy to achieve for most decent USB 3.0 flash drives. In my experience, you can expect somewhere around 75-80% of the rated write speed (provided that it's below the USB 2.0 theoretical ceiling of 60MB/s).

    I regularly see around 14-15MB/s writes with my wife's USB 3.0 flash drive (Lexar S73 16GB). I haven't tried using my SanDisk Extreme 32GB on a USB 2.0 port yet, will try it out tonight when I get home and post the results here. :-)
