osnnraptor: i actually have one of the OCZ Core v2 30GB drives (on Newegg for $69 and also a $20 MIR to make it $49). Booting.... very freakin nice. Think last i tested, Vista Ultimate x64 after a relatively clean install (after installing video drivers, sound, mouse, and a few apps) was booting in about 30 seconds. I've heard that XP can boot in almost half that. Probably slightly quicker in RAID. I can tell you though..... if those OCZ Vertex drives come out, and can be had on Newegg for a decent amount less than what that article quotes (which tends to happen between the MSRP and the internet prices), i'm probably gonna buy two and eBay the one i have.... or both that i'll have if i get one for xmas too.

I dual boot XP/Vista on my VelociRaptor (non-raid) and XP boots in at about 10 seconds while Vista comes in at about 25.

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!
