What is advantage of cahce ? It is matter with 32Mb or 64Mb cache.

If someone wants to get all techie go right ahead but for the most part the cache is a buffer. The hard drive writes to the cache while your computer is reading data from it. Yes the bigger cache on the disk the better performance.

It speeds things up, but isn't worth spending extra money for.
