I was wondering what all of you have to think in the field of software development (device drivers, applications, and other stuff) and games about this type of HDD setup for a proper boot, game-developement raid array, and of course storage of video, mp3 and what not.

Boot Drive Intel X25-M v2 (with trim) 80gb as the boot device.

Two VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS (150gb) Raid Striped for Visual Studio 2008 and VS 2010 Beta and decent games (along with the host O/S swap files).

And the new enterprise Western Digital RE4-GP WD2002FYPS 2TB SATA 3.0Gb as data storage.

I was just wondering if this is a class act for a new development workstation with an Intel Core i7-960?

I just want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before opening fire with the wallet.

I'd suggest dropping the pricey enterprise drives and raptors, then use the extra money to get a higher-capacity SSD. Put your OS and all your apps on the SSD.
