nah, the 7200.12 drives are almost as fast as them, and ssd's are a bit cheaper, but have much less room. so if it's gonna be an OS only drive, then ssd is where you wanna be. hehe that rhymed.

yeah but they are no where near the cost.

and i was going for the 7200.12 vs Velocirapter, not 7200.12 vs SSD. SSD wins all day baby!

Very nice!

I recently did a clean small server build with 2 1tb's in raid 1 with a stand alone 500gb for the os.

i really like that setup.

I like VW's to what do you drive?
