Default Choices on HDD's Raid 0

What would be faster: two 74G Raptors in Raid 0 , or two 80G Seagate 7200rpm 16mb cache drives in Raid 0? Seems like the Raptors but they are only 8mb cache but are 10k rpm's. Maybe the rpm's make a bigger difference than cache, I dunno, yet. Clue me in please.

raptors.

But either would be very fast.

I'd just go for the seagates...cheaper and probably more reliable.

For the same price of a raptor you can get 2 250gb 7200 rpm 16mb cache hd's from either Western Digital or Seagate and run them in raid. Maybe not as fast but 500gb's of hd in raid aint bad!
