I have a 7200.10 drive with 8MB of cache... I got it mixed up with the 16MB cache one on newegg when I was buying my stuff.

 

D'oh... I need more self control when Im spening money and buying stuff.

I have two of the 16meg cache 320GB 7200.10 SATA II Seagates and love 'em. They're the first drives that caused me to stop purchasing Western Digitals. I may avail myself of this offer myself. One can never have enough hard drives. :)

Hmm should I get this and use with my raptor, or just sell the raptor?

Thats alot of diff drives to have in a raid array.

 

If it was me, I'd run the Raptor as the system drive and use the Seagate(s) as the storage/data drive(s). Move the My Documents folder to the Seagate(s) and store NOTHING on the Raptor. Would see a big improvement in overall performance. And I wouldn't try to raid them all together either. Too much hassle and overall lower performance.
