Fill me in, I heard that the fx57 was kinda overpriced because you can make the 55 do the same thing.

just fill me in

take a look at the benchmarks on these charts. Youll see that the FX-57 is the overall best. The FX-55 is a very close second, so you're right. I just thought you were looking for the "best" and suggested the best....

Then scrap the Raptor. Too expensive for what it does...

RAID0 a couple of Barracudas together (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148040). They ahve NCQ, and are close enough to the Raptors speed that the human senses cannot tell them apart. And you still come out $30+ and 86GB ahead.

OK. It is your money after all. But all you end up with is something that you can brag about.

Now, if you RAID0 two Raptors together... well, now, that's a whole 'nuther bucket o' fish...
