I would recommend waiting. Right now you will have so spend quite a bit of money to get a good boost in benchmarks; either go the Velociraptor route or RAID (or both if cost is not an option). But that will give you a boost in bechmarks and not that much in real world use. It will speed up your load times but not much else.

The new crop of SSDs are coming in the near future. SSDs usually have stunning seek speeds and good read times. They will also increase competition and drive down the cost of existing drives.

And x-mess sales will be starting up soon.
