Thanks eva, I seen your posts here and over at http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=402118
I just ordered 4 of these for $216 shipped here in the US out of California. They are $55 shipped each but an additional $1 discount on each drive for ordering multiple items
I will be installing this on my Biostar N4SLI-A9, I ordered that cheap NF4 board too because my NF4-4x Gigabyte K8NF-9 only supports SATA-150, perfect timing too because I'm building a computer for a family member so they are getting my old MB/HD this will be combined with a 6800GS(thinking about getting another to utilize the SLI feature ), 2GB (2x1024) PQI Turbo PC3200 with heat spreaders, and an A64 3000+ Venice.. kinda nice knowing my cpu is going to be the only bottleneck. I may actually overclock it now if I can find good info on how to do it. I have the Zalman ALCU hs/fan on my CPU, Zalman copper hs with fan for my video card, and 6 80mm fans in my Chieftec Dragon case, the system definately has overclock potential, but I have never attempted it.. Only "thought" about it because since I have never overclocked before I am pretty scared. I will give my final thoughts on the 4x7k80 in raid 0 in a couple weeks when I get it all up and runnin thanks for the help with my decision on a HD upgrade when I wasn't even wanting to! I somehow ran into the thread over at ocforums and it shined a light telling me it was time to upgrade from my single WD 160gb sata-150.. damn you
sorry to revive this... I know I'm a little late
and so you know, reiability is not a problem.. anything important goes on my Linux box which is safe, and 320GB of storage is more than enough.. I would be fine if my total storage was 80GB... I burn everything to DVD's or just put it on my linux box with more than enough storage space

god damn, how am i going to fit in another 4 drives, lol
here is what the rig used to look like.
with its superior cable management :P
I now have it all shoved into the case and dont want to go back to that, but hey with this type of performance gain i may have to
I dont suppose you have any numbers on game load times such as BF2 in single and Raid configs?

my 4x7k80's @32
my raid is set at 64, is that where I should leave it?? how do I turn on that NCQ or whatever it is?? what does it do?? does it help?? anything else I should change?? I am pretty damn clueless about raid.. I am only doing this because of the wows everybody is giving for evas , must mean it's good right?? what can I do to get better numbers? Well ofcourse, I prefer more for real world results, what settings will give me that?? What is the cluster?? how do I change it and what setting should I use?? I mainly just want to load games faster is all. I hate entering the game with the majority of people and having to fight for vehicles. I want to be the first person loaded so I get whatever I want(yah I'm greedy). Thanks guys/gals
