My System Specs

Default

Only real complaint I have is that my WD 640GB Black gets rather noisy when installing/running a virtual machine in VMware from it. Though it was like that with my WD 500GB as well so I guess VM's are just a bit harsh on hard drives.

Also the Seagate 7200.12 500GB is pretty much on-par with the 640GB drives for performance as it has a single 500GB platter (640GB drives have dual 320GB platters). I'm thinking about grabbing one to replace my 500GB RAID0 array (dual 250GB drives) since my RAID performs pretty much identical to it.
