Waste of money in my opinion as well. No need for all that "extreme" this or that...as well as 2 vid cards like that. Save some bucks and build a dang 1k system, and put the rest into a Roth IRA acct. so when you're 65 you'll be a millionaire like me

-or ****, dual 250gb for about same price as the 150gb raptor and raid them if you want, close to same performance and an extra 350gb of space for those big graphic intensive games. Games nowadays are taking up more and more space so remember that. 150gb isnt a lot of you have a ton of games. I remember when UT2003 came out and I put it on my old system...I was like 3GB WTF, I had a 40GB HD at the time LOL. UT2004 was 4gb! So be mindful.
Done. Far cheaper and works strong enough to destroy most games out today and most upcoming ones. You'd be fine.
