the 36gb raptors are crap, you need to have 74gb + to make any use of them and if he does that it will blow his budget on the rig i posted, he best to start off with a 74 GB raptor then add a 2nd one later to stay in his budget range, i will change it now.

Also maxtors are not crap, i run 2 80 gig sata maxtors in RAID0 and they r awesome

Edit: Rig i suggested has been finalized and i sticken with it, i been building pcs for quite some time so if u think u can do better then show him yours, don't question mine.

ive seen benchmarks when comparing them to normal satas and they do no better, and u just lose a ton of space for the same money when comparing to a normal sata, the 74 gb raptors i know do great, thats why i put one in the list.
