Here's mine...I think it's time I upgrade my 7200.11 HD's

I was wondering does anybody have like 2X74 or 150GB Raptors in RAID 0 to use as the primary boot drive?

I'm thinking to use a setup like 2XRaptors RAID 0, and 1 Tera for programs+other

Ewwwwwww...



I'm not sure if this is because it is a 2.5" SATA, vs. a 3.5" desktop equivalent but...
This graph looks hideous.
EDIT: Without Write Caching:

Here's mine on W7U using Seagate SATAII 320 drives.
I've got my pagefile moved over to my second drive.
I noticed with W7 that the Burstspeed almost doubled from XP & Vista which suggests better memory management in W7.

Since I don't have HD Tune, I'll show you my HD Tach score.
