hi there , my rig
Case: HAF 932
MB: EVGA i7 X58 SLI Classified
Ram: Corsair DDR3 CM3X2G2000C8GT series
Cooling : Swiftech kit MB CPU blocks
HD : 1 x V/Raptor 10,000rpm 300gb
2 x Western Digital (black edition) 1Tb raid 0
PSU:Enerma Revolution 1250 watt
Video: 2 x EVGA CO-OP GTX 295 Sli
Sound: Xi-Fi Fatalaty Titnm pro with front display

I was told to just get 1 V/Raptor for my OS and not 2 in raid 0 as it would not be any difference is this true i can afford to buy another but it seems very fast , faster then the 2 x WD Blk editions in raid 0 as i had the OS (win 7 Prof 64bt) installed on them before i brought the V/Raptor and once i installed the OS on the Raptor it seems a-lot quicker in games and apps but i am not sure if i need another raptor or just leave it,thnks

for the price of 2 V/Raptor you can buy an SSD drive
