In the event that you have those Seagates set in raid, check this out:

TweakXP.com - Incorrect Tweak Enable Large System Cache

That may just be XP, but unless I learned otherwise, I would consider it still valid.

You're talking about an old "XP Pro" registry tweak...

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
\Session Manager\Memory Management
DWORD "LargeSystemCache" =1

I wouldn't bother doing it...on a win 7

Unless you're in a very particular condition in a corporation, you shouldn't enable this.
