Alright I need to ask a question, and this seemed like the best place to ask it. I value your opinions. So any ways, I'm looking to get a fast hard drive for just gaming and so that means it needs to be fast but not necisarily have a lot of space. So initially I was gonna go 2 36GB Raptors in raid format, then I saw the new 150GB raptor whith it's bigger cache. So basically I wanted to know your opinions, should I go 2 36GB raptors in raid, one 150GB raptor, or just get a nice SATA 2 drive with 16MB cache?

Just let me know, I'm still weeks a way from doing this. But I wanted to get some feedback so I knew were I was headed. Thanks for the input.

if budget is not a concern, i think the 150gb raptor would be best, especially in the long run, as you could always get another for well over twice the speed 2x36 would offer.
