yeah, it's a lot faster. I don't know what all this anti-raptor setiment is about... They're high quality, very fast drives. I don't think you wasted your money at all. You can upgrade the ram later. That is, if you need it...

yeah another satisfied raptor user here. when I first got one I checked load times against my 7200rpm. Windows would load about 20% faster as weel as game load times. Now I agree that for the price you can get more gb for the dollar but for pure speed they are superior. I would reccoment running os and games on the raptor and put all data on your other drive. Bottom line if money is not an issue and speed is then go for the raptor.

The raptor will make a bigger difference than 2gb of ram.
