Default 15,000 RPM HDs

I was just looking at them on Newegg. Anyone have one? They must be insanely fast.

Actually, they aren't "only good for servers." They'd deliver the same performance configured properly in a PC. Last time I checked the only 15k drives were SCSI though, which means super expensive drives and an expensive controller to top it off. I would have one for shizzle in my PC if I was rich.

But then again, a lot of sources say that they don't perform much better than two raptors in raid-0...

Im not sure the price of the controlers but if 2 SCSI drives are in Raid 0 Im sure they will outperform raptors cause SCSI are usally 15K RPM and raptors are 10K RPM as you said.

Aright, so if you wanna use 2 scsi drives in raid-o to beat two raptors...

2x $470 for 15k 73gb SCSI drives
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822116151

1x $180 for a SCSI raid 1/0 controller
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816118018

=$1120

VERSUS

2x $180 for 74gb Raptors
1x free onboard SATA raid is hard to avoid

=$360

SCSI sound worth it to you? Surely isn't for most.
