Hmm...I don't know exchange rates...

Still, I can get three cheap 120's, perhaps even a couple of WD SEs, and RAID them to beat that at an equal/perhaps lower price ;)

Yeah but 4 of these in RAID0 would give you killer bragging rights (1TB of memory) LOL. I'm sure you could find something to do with that much memory on your hands and that much speed.

Storage, bro, storage...my computer programming teacher who thinks he knows stuff calls it memory *shudders*

;)

Id prefer bragging rights over an array of 15k.3's, though (and its not too far in the future either :D)

well to the average computer user, the larger space is more important than the quality :D it's like those people who will buy 1024 mb sdram instead of 512mb ddr... a huge portion of computer programs will not ever use the whole 512 mb ram... unless you multitask like crazy... still both setups would give you nice bragging rights
