    I've updated my system and have stupidly left updating my hardrive untill last. Anyway which would be faster two 1000rpm raptors in raid 0 or 2 7200rpm sata2 in raid 0? i work with media and will need fast access times.

    cheers

    raptors for the win

    raid 0 will greatly increase transfer rate. access time is only slightly increased, if at all.

    dont forget to do proper backups, you lose one drive, you lose it all.

    Yup, definitely the Raptors... They'll have faster access times because of their 10000rpm, and Raid0 would make them REALLY fast.
