I like the see through factory modded 150GB raptors. Shame I do not have a case where you can lie the HDD on its side :D

Thats freaking cool :D

This is the only time I can see that kind of thing being cool though... I mean come on, a see through hard drive? Seems like the last thing you would want change for looks.

Hopefully the drive works well for you though, because with your setup you can actually appreciate that see through cover. It looks just like your Logitech speakers :D

Nice. The Raptor 150 is fast - been using one since the day they came out. :)

I have a 320GB drive in a USB enclosure for my storage drive.

I thought you had 7900GTX's???

Those are 7900GTX's :)

And yes, 150GB is enough for me, 74GB was pretty much enough for me also! I only have a few games, and thats it..lol

As for RAIDO... I dunno, this thing was so expensive, I might hold off, as there are other things I would rather get :)

I wish they would have mounted a lill blue led inside the drive.

Same here. No porn. Probably same for you from what I can tell of your disk space. Hah! I do have a huge external drive (well relatively huge anyway) but it's filled with 720p/1080i high def content and not porno. lol

Ditto.

Nice drive jakUp, just wondering though, isn't the non-windowed version much cheaper and have a much longer estimated lifetime? I might pick up two of those off ebay or something.

I think the non windowed version is something like $40-50 cheaper. For me it made a lot more sense mainly because my case window isn't that huge - doesn't show the drive rack and the rest of the aluminum internals off to the right side. I sorta like it that way I guess. :)
