My System Specs

Default

I am playing around with a setup right now that has 2 x seagate 640's in raid0 and it's far from slow but it's no ssd. SSd's just make the system snappy because of access times being nothing.

Since an ssd is out the cheapest fastest raid0 hdd setup i can think of would be 2 x 320's or 2 x 500's or 2 x 640's. everything else is outta of price range i think your idea of the momentus

is the simple cheaper way to go. that being said you can get a 30 gb Kingston on sale for 80 bucks then run a hdd for all data and installs or even 2 other hdd 1 for install's 1 for data. but

there are lots of options. good luck
