Default WD SATA 10000rpm Enterprise Hard Drive

I got a little more then 250$ this x-mas. Plus im selling my Xbox with 8 games for 200-250. So im probably going to have 450$ in a few days. Plus im getting paid next friday, so im getting my Raid HDD system, and my evga nvidia geforce 6800 GT. My computer needs 5 more things. So im finishing my computer up. So i have a question about this hard drive.

My question is im going to get Dual WD Raptor 36GB 10000rpm Serial SATA HDD's. But i see this one 36GB HD for 138$, while their is this one kind called WD Raptor Enterprise 36GB, witch this HD is around 200$. My friend gave me this site that had them, i looked at its specs, and seen nothing different.

I know that websites show general information, so i obviously missed somthing. Can someone tell me the difference..?

Well I have good news, and bad news...

Bad news, I don't know the answer to your question.

Good news:

I can save you about $30 bucks on the Raptor, you obveously didn't look around to much, be glad I just bought this, check it out:

36gb Raptor for $109

Also, this is a reputable site, as many people here will vouch for it. Good Luck.

It is a good site, in just the same box as you would receive for $30 more. It is right next to me, now im stroking it, believe me, it is fine, came packaged very nicely as well.

Yeah they have the abbreviation of SATA-E I believe and I looked something up on them off the WD site but I too didn't find anything incredibly out of the ordinary.

Here's an article regarding it:

http://www.tomshardware.com/hardnews...10_083651.html

I'd say just go for the non-enterprise version.

BTW: I've bought from zipzoomfly a hundred times, I infact suggested it to Alex. They offer really good service and if anything is wrong they do a goob job of getting it replaced.

They use UPS though which I find usually sucks compared to FedEX, so I've noticed with newegg I generally get the package a day early whereas with UPS it'll be there probably around 5pm on the day it's due...one time they didn't come until 10pm.

Anywho, hope that info helps ya
