Don't waste your money on a VRaptor...just get two WD640AAKS drives and run them in RAID...it's faster and cheaper, trust me, I have a VRaptor and the 640's.

RAID 0 is nowhere near as safe as running a single drive especially if you are using an onboard motherboard RAID controller.

I've got a 150 Raptor, with nothing on it ( I think its 2 years old now).

PM me if you're interested.
