Raptor 36gb for OS and game Harddrive question
Dec 10, 2005, 5:37 AM
Hey there all.
Im thinking about buying a 36gb raptor for my gaming rig to improve my 50sec boot time and decrease Load times in games.
I was wondering what kinda boot times you get with xp pro and if anyone plays ut2k4 maxed @1024x768 and what the load times are.
Another question if i get two 36gigers in raid 0 How much time will be shaved off is it like 5sec off the boot and maybe 5 for the game also compared to single raptor.
One last thing heh, What is the warrenty anyone know on raptors?
Thanks for the replys there greatly Appreciated

For speed, the 74gig Raptor is considerably faster than the 36gig model.
Something to consider if top speeds are concerned...
2x 36gb Raptors vs 1x 74gb Raptor
Raptor X, am i doing something wrong?
300 GB Raptor Drive

If you have the money and really want to reduce boot time, get 2 raptors and use RAID 0.
I have 2 raptors in RAID 0 and it takes about 15 sec to get to the login screen.
Ask a new question
74 gig raptor or 640 gig BE
New boot drive
