Just a trick for you Mr. Brain, if you create a 20 gig partition on your raptor for the OS you'll get (most) of the full effects of the 80mb/s speeds of the drive without having to constantly run a defragger that'll optimise it for you. The drawback is that disk benchies will report slower than normal read/write times because they report on a drive level and not a partition level... but YOU will most certainly feel the difference ;)
