If you Raid0 the two 7200.10's it'd be pretty close performance-wise, however raid is a little less reliable. Raptors cost more though, so it's up to you how much you want to spend.

Your getting a LOT more space for about the same performance. Your getting 720GB opposed to 150GB for cheaper...as stated they aren't as fullproof as a solo Raptor but I doubt anything will go wrong. Go with it man

I'd say two 7200 RPM drives running at Raid 0

2 74gb raptors in raid 0 is pretty kickass, and then just get a 3rd like 320gb HDD or something.. ~.~


BUT... raid0 7200's should be suffice, I think.
