lol, sure why not. Anything to save you time and money. I'm thinking 2 8gb in raid. It would be lightning fast and only enough room for an OS and $160 later

On the bright side it can't be any worse than their ram. OCZ....yuck!
How come your always on late nowadays?

Supposedly they are the only drives to actually push the 3.0 Gb/s transfer rate of SATA II. I don't know why there is such a huge discrepancy between the older SLC drives and the newer Intel MLC drives, but it's outrageous.
