That is a nice price.....wish I had $250 burning a hole in my pocket for a nice little RAID"0"

yea, I saw them on clearance at work... I would have picked one up, but I plan on just getting a Raptor X OEM no newegg for around $200. Rather have 1 big noisy 10,000 rpm drive, than having 2 smaller drives.... (easier without all the partitions)

Thanks for the info. I, so far, haven't had a Raptor so maybe I'll pick one or two up.

This is the best in store sale price I have seen. I bought one on sale last year for 139.95 and that was with a mail-in rebate (I despise mail-in rebates). I have one in two separate pc's and the oldest is going on two years. Best drive for gaming IMO. Thinking about going Raid again if I can decide on the right motherboard for a new build.

Made me not miss SCSI.

Raptors are very cool.

I'm not into PC gaming at all but it would be nice for my server.

I was just at one of my local Best Buys and they had two of them for $119.95. I almost bought them both to RAID 5 them with my current one, but I really don't know if I have the room for them or not. It's cramped as hell in there now with the 8800s taking up so much room, I really don't know if they'll fit.

Plus, I'd have to reformat/reinstall which is always a PITA....decisions, decisions...
