    Those 80GB 10k RPM drives aren't as fast as newer 500GB, 1TB 7200RPM drives. You're better off waiting for hard drive prices to come back down.

      Re: how about this?

      I actually have one of those brand new sitting in the wrapper. It has a 5 year warranty, and mine gave out after 4.5 years so they sent me a new one. After looking at some speed tests, it turns out that as Voodoo said a good 1TB drive is faster, and not nearly as loud. I had already installed Windows on another drive while I was waiting on shipping from WD, so didn't both reinstalling to the Raptor.

      They sell really cheap on Ebay right now, and I wouldn't mind selling mine for about $40.

      And of course a good SSD blows them both away, which is what I'm looking for now.

        I bought a 120GB SSD drive with 500MB read and write per second for ~$150 and I saw them advertised for $120. Much faster than those 'raptors'.

          I currently have a 64g SSD Crucial M4 on firmware 009. It has BF3, windows 7 64bit, TS, and that's it. Just looking for a drive to install other games on. I was really really hoping the same drive I currently have would have come up with the cyber Monday deals but didn't happen.
          Thinking back I should have grabbed 2 back on the labor day special when I got my SSD for $68 + free shipping :( Poor laps in judgement on my part
