The Velociraptor will have a faster access time (time needed to FIND the data) while the Black drive will probably have a faster transfer rate (time needed to actually read the data once it's been found).

For booting Windows and starting up programs the access time is usually the bottleneck, so you'll probably find that the Velociraptor will be faster.
