Hitachi 7K1000 vs WD Raptor

Hello All,

Am building a box for a friend, and I would like to reduce the potential of bottle neck at the HD, but avoid using a Raid 0 setup.

Build Details: Q6600, Abit IP35 Pro, 2GB Corsair XMS2, Black XP, etc.

I originally thought we would do a Raptor for the OS and applications, and a 500GB Samsung for the handling of data. But after reading a glowing review (linked below), and other posts from newegg buyers, I am considering just using a single drive, the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.

Cost is not a huge factor for this guy, I am just trying to deliver the best bang for the buck.

Any thoughts on this, or other HDs that I have not included here?
