just get 60 or 80 gb ssd, so much faster to work with..

hdd will work fine for mining, but ssd boots faster, launches things faster... and its better for something that is on 24.7 due to no moving parts. if you already have an hdd, you can use it, but probably best to buy an ssd in the future

Thanks for the replies. I was mainly thinking about the effect on the pagefile speed and overall performance since i don´t have 16 gigs of ram other than in one rig.

HDD are usually designed to run 24/7 no problem. They're not all created equal but not bad option. However for zcash since you may be involving the pagefile which is stored on the hard drive; solid state is probably the way to go.
Also if you are being particular about power... the difference between HDD and SSD is negligible.
