Yea but the Raptor 10k over 100gb is crazy expensive. If its not going to be a boot drive then just about anything will do, good ol reliable Samsung might be a good choice, have not had a failure from those in ages and i use them mostly these days. Hitachi has an excellent track record, seagate is great, WD too and lately Maxtor have recovered. For pure speed i'd get a raptor, but for reliability and mass storage, Samsung, Seagate or a WD Caviar, with Samsung more for reliability. In my opinion the Raptor is not old enough for me to judge reliablity and i only use small numbers to have an opinion on them though 3 of the 30 or so i've installed have failed, 2 36 and 1 74, bear in mind these were earlier models not long off the first UK batches.

By the way, what does BTW stand for?
It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
