    The performance of the WD Blacks is well-known enough that their price is hiked. You're often better off setting up two slower drives in RAID 0—more performance at a lower cost per GB.

    If you go with the same number of drives in the RAID array, sure it'll be faster with Black drives than it would be with slower drives. It should go without saying that this is only useful if you go with a larger number of the slower drives. I didn't see that you already had a Black that would be used in the RAID array, as that was stated several posts previous.

    It's not under $40, but NewEgg will have a 1TB Black SATA 6GB/s drive for $78.99 for the mid-day Shell Shocker.

    well, if e5640s were selling for 300$, I'm guessing 250~300$

    Cause the deals on the Spinpoint F3s a couple of months back, everybody jumped on those.

    A bit of shameless self promotion here, but I've got a pair of x5680s, pm me for a combo price :)
