im holding out for a cheap (£150 or so) 256gb SSD that does about 200MB/s + write and 150MB/ps + read... prices are coming down as the drives get faster and larger... not too much longer i think :D

I was tempted to get two 30g drives... but then changed my mind as 60gb on raid 0 is still too small which is why i dont use my raptor 74g as my system disk anymore.

i guess two 60gb flash drives would be alright in raid 0 (and not that pricy) as I take it they dont suffer from slowdown as they get full like conventional disks tend to do
