My System Specs

Raptors will be the best performance usually, but really a 1TB Black is less than a hundred bucks and will Run most games with minimal loading. Just tried out the RPG 'Risen' and threw it on my black since my SSD is getting a little full and I have very minimal loading times and it's not a game renown for good load speeds (which is funny considering how dated the graphics look).

for cost/performance you hit the nail on the head. Raid 0 two spinpoints and you'll be good to go, if not even more than 2. They're cheap and with the ability to get more with less, raid will make up the speed for you.
