Zer0Cool,

I looked into it a little more, and i wasn't right.

2X 7200 RPM drives in raid 0 Outperform a single WD raptor.

But as you know, you have 2X the chance for failure with RAID 0.

sorry for the misunderstanding man

id say only get the bigger drive if you do video editing, or absolutely need tons of space. id say the size of files isnt increasing as fast as the size of the Hard drives. Id be fine for a VERY long time with a 150gig raptor.

once you get the raptor, id put ur OS on that, along with the rest of your programs/games/etc.... and get off raid on the 2 400gb hdd's. it's a little risky because if one dies youll lose all data
