Default new raptors?

i am going to buy a hard drive for the comp i'm bulding pretty soon, and i'm leaning towards the Western Digital Raptor 10,000 RPM 74 gigs. the only thing i'm concerned about is the size, has anybody heard any rumors about WD releasing a new 10,000 RPM HD with a larger capacity any time soon? if not, i'll just get 2 and set up a RAID configuration.

74 is more then suffiecent if your doing every day stuff. Just use your big ide stuff for other files. If it were my choice i would have a 18gb 15k scsi main for windows and like a few programs. Everything else would go on like the ide drives. I would stick with the 74 though!
