I've had a pair of 74GB raptors in RAID 0 and it didn't seem to make any difference over the 320GB seagates I had prior. I could see maybe a 2 second lower boot time but for just about everything else there is no noticable difference. SSDs can be similar some of the time, but there is a huge advantage on the noise front. Raptors can get kind of annoying to listen to.
