My System Specs


You also have to remember that current high capacity 7200rpm drives are actually faster than a velociraptor in many cases as well...HWC review of seagate barracuda 3tb in RAID 0 (I know its in raid, but the review also contains info for a single drive and that's the info I am going from).

Seagate Barracuda 3TB in RAID 0: Performance Unleashed

With a quick look I believe it is faster in every benchmark than the 150GB velociraptor. If you have a velociraptor then use it (its still a good drive), but if you don't then I wouldn't bother with one.
