    I could never trust somebody that would give a price that out of range

    Which would you recommend for me? I want a raptor for OS drive, but will definitely not use more than 20/25GB for the system drive. Anything not directly affecting the system will be put on a separate drive/partition.

    So, should I be getting the 36G or the 74G?

    you dont need or want a raptor period. Too overpriced and under sized.

    I have a 36GB for my system and a 74GB for games and such. I dont think that the 36GB was a good idea for my system drive tho. I got faster bootup times with a ata drive :(. I might have something setup wrong tho, I would check for some single drive raptor benchmarks. And if you dont want to do that :p here you go

    Those are both JUST single drives no raid or anything

    74GB has better read times and apparently works better overall then the 36GB one. I can't remember all of the specifics but that it's just better overall.
