    yeah, deffinately get the same HD again.

    With RAID 0, you will get the theoretical performance of twice your slowest hard drive, so you be wasting your current HD if you got anything worse and went for RAID.

    get IBM 75GXP 7200rpm, IBM 60GXP 7200rpm or the Quantum Fireball AS 7200rpm.
    The IBM is a winner cus of lower noice.
    But the Quantum u could get in 10 GBs and up
    Sorry to say the 10GB, 15GB and 20GB of the IBMs 75GXP has vanished somehow :C

    But then IBM 60GXP has 20GB, 40GB etc.

    Coldfusion: Sure you're right but when some original question is asked nobody has anything to say on it. So we just keep at the same stuff over and over.
