Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

Guys is a raptor (10,000rpm) drive still worth buying? I haven't really needed a faster HDD before but right now the windows is a bit slow and raptors are cheap enough. What i want to know is,compared with the normal 7200rpm drives available these days,are raptors really a significant step forward? I found a 160GB WD raptor in 25$ so thought might as well ask.

There are a lot of factors that go into that but generally, yes they are worth buying.

Sure a Raptor is still a speedy drive but not like a SSD. I've not heard of any compatibility problems with other drives, unless maybe in a RAID set.

The sequential read/write speeds are decent, but still nowhere near an SSD in ANY category.
