Samsung F1 ftmfw.....I will have that drive one day....but it looks like I've just burdened my credit card with a nice E6750, don't know the stepping but the guy had it stable 3.7ghz @ 1.405v so it seems decent to me

Well the WD 320gb Caviar SE is the fastest 320gb drive out, no need for the 32mb cache....

The fastest 7200rpm drive out is the Samsung F1 1TB drive....but 7200.11 is pretty quick as well and not very far behind...but neither one is as fast as a raptor for loading levels and such.

A raptor is still a waste though. I'd rather have a single Samsung F1 drive or 2 WD 320mb drives in RAID 0

Well I bought it... I really need to stop spending money on my computer now...

Do you guys think I would notice a performance difference if I made the new drive my OS drive? Right now I have a seagate 7200.10 16mb cache 320gb as my main.
