You're right, those Velociraptors are much faster than the old raptors, now sure but as far I remembered the old raptors when they came out were the same price for a 74GB, yea this one is double the capacity too.
I agree Sir Vortex, I was first looking at the 500GB HDD's, but then looked again for a little dollar more these 640GB are more worth it, basically I was looking to RAID 2 drives, I also looked at the 1TB, but they are a little out of budget. Currently I have 4xWD250GB drives in RAID0, but tbh, now it seems to get slower, louder, and space wise, I could put 2 drives and get the same amount of performance, and use the space for maybe water cooling parts, or something.
I will try and dig a review of the Seagate and WD, if I can.
