Default Raptor...

I was just wondering what things you can really tell a difference in with a Raptor HD and a standard 7200 rpm HD.

And how many of you owners of raptors think the speed justifies the price difference?

Raptors decrease the load time for levels in games, so basically you would be waiting much less time for a Doom 3 level to load with a Raptor. Personally, I don't think the extra speed is worth the money, especially when that money can be spent on things that really affect gameplay like getting a high end graphics card.
