Now don't go scaring the poor guy telling him he needs to spend $400 on his hard drives alone! having 2x 10k rpm hard drives in raid 0 is a luxury, not a necessity. However getting a SATA hard drive is a necessity. I recommend this one:
If you can afford the $400 10k raid setup, go for it.

so, umm, err yeah

the main thing that jumped out at me about your rig was the (sorry) slow hard drive. that board supports SATA150 not to mention RAID. with the capibilities of that dual core chip you are going to be running into the wall waiting for the hard drive to catch up. I would recommend 2X western digital rapture 10K on RAID 0. set you back another $400 unfortunately but hey, you gotta pay to play! Peace!
yeah I agree with you and I am going to get a 74gb raptor but no raid
