Re: SSD or Raptor to make Vista more spritely?

The Raptors are probably the best bang for the buck when it comes to SSD vs. Raptors. The SSD's can be fast, but in some benchmarks the Raptors are faster. And the cost/performance ratio is better with the Raptor.

Good luck! And, yes, it is a huge difference once you get them installed and compare the speeds (loading OS, loading games, etc.).

Would put Vista on 32gb SSD (13gb out of 25gb)(Patriot or OCZ, probably) or
on WD Raptor (75gb or whatever)
