first off, please don't get the raptor. If you want speed, get a 74gig for a master and a 320 or something (they're like 70$ now) for storage.
second, GOOD CALL on the mx518/saitek eclipse...just don't get too mad while playing a game and smash your fist on the space bar
i've broken two of them doing that haha.. i love newegg's return policy
third, there was only a 25 or 30 minute difference between you're posts... someone WILL get to it eventually, just give it time.
90% of the active kids who are here go to high school anyway and don't have computer access... lucky for me i do from 12 to 2.
