150GB vs 74 GB Raptors

  1. Is there any performance difference between the 150GB WD Raptor and the 74 GB Raptor? The 150GB is a better dollar/GB ratio, so that's what I'd want, but if there is a huge performance difference then I don't mind spending some extra money for 2 74GB HDD's.

    It all depends on what you want to achive really. Striping 2 74's will be quicker but windows wont install on striped drives. Theres also the fact 2 74's will use 2 ata channels whereas the 150 will only use the 1,
