I was thinking about getting a raptop for my build but it didn't seem worth the money considering its slightly faster for a lot more money and less hard drive space. Let me know how you like it.

Yea...for the price of the raptor, you can RAID 0 two Seagate 7200.10 320s. But going for the raptor, is a little less risky than RAID 0, if one drive failed.

PSU: Apevia 680W beastpower W/ PFC

Not the best PSU I know, but hopefully all goes well, I checked the 12+ rails and they have enough amps to support the system

I thought long and hard about wether or not to go with the raptor. I figured why the heck not since I had the money and space is not really an issue for me ( meaning I don't need big 300 gig hard drives ). Plus in the future ill prob get another raptor and Raid em then, but for now 1 raptor is sufficient. Plus I always wanted a raptor :P
