Honestly I wouldnt go with one of the raptors, for that price your not going to see much real world difference over a say WD 640 black with windows short stroked. Like its been said its hard to tell what to tell you without knowing what other specs your running as in video card and ram. Is the Q6600 overclocked? if your running a low power video card with a stock clocked Q6600 I would think youd have enough power for 5 HDDs, but if your running some sort of gaming video card say an 8800GT or more then alot of that 550w is going to be used up. If it where me, id just go with the 1 raptor you already have and 3 640 blacks in raid 5 if your motherboard can handle that. This is all speculation of course...
