well, you were talking about putting some seagates in RAID or something to save money. i guess the fun in that would be the saving money part. ?

PS when i said "almost as fast 1/2 the price" i was talking about the seagates, not the vertex drives.

Supposedly those Vertex drives eliminate the stuttering. Intel is currently the performance leader in SSDs, but if you don't wanna spend $400-$700 for a drive then OCZ is the way to go. The new Samsung SSDs are supposed to be good too, but they seem to be a little harder to find.
