the raptor is faster, alot faster if you RAID 0 (when the loading screen comes up for windows, the blue bar goes across twice for me and then goes to desk top about 5-7seconds)... is it worth the money though, thats a tough question to answer. i tend to hang onto my parts for a long time so for me, yes its worth it. i'll be bringing these raptors with me when i build my next rig in like 6 months. if you buy all new parts every 4 months like some in these forums, its not worth it.
My loading bar goes across twice for me too, and with a relatively fresh install only 1.5 times. Regular 7200 RPM Maxtor 160GB disk; Athlon XP 1600+.
