Thanks guys. AlecStaar.........i really dont need a 100GB drive.....(i already have a 34 gig). Its really not worth the extra $185 cdn
the seagate is $205cdn and the WD is $390 for something that I really dont need

I'm running a Seagate Barracuda 80GB. No problems so far.
It's fast, and it's ultra quiet.

Too fast for RAID say Seagate!!!

I was going to buy 2 40gig versions of this drivefor RAID. In the end I went with the new Maxtor HDD's. Reason is that for RAID, latenc becomes more important and the Seagates have a high latency compared to other drives.

I don't remember where I heard it, but there was some major issue between the HighPoint HPT370 controller and some Seagate drives in RAID that resulted in slow-ass performance.
I thought I might mention that to ya, especially if you're using an Abit RAID board. ;)

similar set up...60gig Seagate Barracuda as my C: system drive and twin Maxtor 40gigs (7200rpm) on a Promise FastTrack RAID card...works great.....

ive actually decided on the 80GB seagate drive. Im gonna pick it up today.....i dont need the extra space but $70cdn exta for 20 more GB is too hard to pass up. Im tempted to get the WD1000BBSe....but i think im gonna pass( im too cheap). Thanks for your input guys

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
