    Top End?

    Ok i admit i do not know a huge amount about hds yet it is a very important part of any computer hehe, and since im building a new comp i need some advice, what is the top hard drive aorund atm, ie the fastest. Would it be some 10,000rpm SATA drive or a 15000 rpm SCSI drive? and also what companies make the best versions?, i will probably go for 1 small fast drive and anoter much larger 1 for storage, thnx

    I would go for a Raptor 36/74gb SATA and a Seagate 200gb SATA.
    AMD Phenom II X4 965BE, Asus M5A88-V Evo, 8GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3-1600 , Coolermaster Hyper212+, OCZ Vertex Plus 60GB, Seagate 7200.11 500GB, Antec EA-380
    Lenovo X200, P8400 C2D, 8GB, 120GB OCZ Vertex 3.

    I think for the money, interface (ease of use) and performance you can't beat the Western Digital Raptor 74GB Serial ATA/10,000rpm.

    74GB Raptor - Main OS and APPS
    200GB Seagate - Storage/Backup (I recommended Seagate becuase they offer a 5 Year warranty)
