My System Specs

Default

Raptors are pretty much obsolete. They're too slow for booting from and too small for data storage. They're also too expensive for what you get.

If you want speed, get SSDs. If you want capacity, get 7200RPM HDDs.

I prefer both: an array of SSDs for booting and a stack of high-capacity eSATA external HDDs for data storage and backup. No internal HDDs for me.
