$79.99 VelociRaptor WD1500HLHX 150GB 10kRPM 32MB Cache

Great One J. Miner. 

 

I know some may argue but I consider the WD Raptor's suitable for just about any application including most enterprise level requirements (I know SAS 15K's exist :)   I have a 36 GB raptor (16 MB cache not the Original) that is still spinning in a active machine right now.  Just the time its been in use is great but the level of use it got as my OS drive in a gaming machine for years & years without fail is what impresses me the most.

 

Shame MOST drives don't come with a more respectable warranty like these.  We might end up having better produced HDD's!

I guess you wore headphones when gaming on that machine, so you didn't hear the noise from the drive.

We had some 15000 RPM Seagates in a Dell server at a previous job.  We had to move the server cabinet into a back room/closet because they were so noisy.

SSD's make no noise...just sayin'.
