i plan on raiding 2 of the seagates to bring it up to 120g.
the 150g raptor is 286 bucks, a bit high for my tastes, i think 2 7200rpm will suit me. i currently have a single 120g and have yet to fill that, so I think Ill be fine. might get it if it drops in the future tho, 10k rpm sounds nice.
and as far as operton goes, i was considering dual core, and the idea is still in the back of my head, but the denmark is 100 bucks more then the 3700+ that i am planning on getting. while i could go up to $1900, i would really rather be closer to $1500. well... i think ill open up a separate topic on single vs dual.
