I'm going back and forth right now between 3x 300gb vraptors and 3x 640gb/750gb WD Blacks in raid 5 on a Intel ICH10R, I would prefer the extra space and saving the money but don't want to take a hard hit on read/write speeds.

I am seeing epic numbers from the vraptors, but can't find anything on the blacks, anyone have some in raid 5, any size?
