Replacing old Raptor - help please.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an aging 75GB Raptor - old 1.5 SATA version. It's making noise. I know some say this model of Raptor does just tend to make noise, but it also has a couple of years and case transfers on it. So what should I replace it with?

I was thinking of a WD Black 640 or 750 (which ever is on sale at the time) 7200rpm w/ 32 MB cache - would I miss the speed of the the Raptor vs the higher cache & quieter drive?

Thanks for any and all input
