the raptor would be faster but you would run out of storage very quickly. imo, the price premium isn't worth it for a few second difference in select few apps. only get a 10000rpm hd if everything else on your pc is already top of the line. most of the time a 7200rpm hd is just fine for day to day usage (the exception would be if you have to encode video real-time)

I wish i hadn't bought the 36 gig raptor - aint enough.

Not that much of a speed difference.
