Most likely you won't even notice the drop in performance, and if you do it's going to be so little that it won't be worth mentioning.

From Reviews and Benchmarks i have seen,

Of all the Raptors the 74GiG Revision II raptor is the fastest.

16MB cache, NCQ, Sata150.

man since you have everything already backed up,

i would say it isnt worth it. As you saw in my post. They did test with 2 7200 Drives in RAID 0 and it beat out a Single Raptor...

so as much as i like the drives,, save the $150 and put it towards somthing else.
