2x WD 500gbs Black or 2x Velociraptors? - Page 3

Have you considered SSDs in Raid 0? Newegg frequently has 60gb SSDs on sale for $100. So you could get 120GB storage for $200. Compared to a VRaptor 150GB @$120, that's really not too bad.

That sounds pretty good, thanks for the heads up. That price would pwn the raptor haha

No problem man, there's also an OCNer with a 120GB Vertex 2 SSD for $185 if you don't mind buying used.

Since you can't afford SSD's. Then I would go with the WD Blacks. Just for the storage since you need it for games and such.

this is the exact question i was debating today. raptors or raid blacks? for those who have that or are planning on doing so. are you using an onboard raid controller or a separate one? i am thinking 2x500gb blacks in raid 0. as fast or faster than a raptor, much more space, and much cheaper than a SSD.
