    Im thinking of getting one of the new 16mb cache raptor drives. Is it any quicker than the 36Gb model i already have?

    It would be used as my main boot drive and i would also intstall my games on it.

    Or should i use the 74Gb for windows and the 36GB for apps?

    Or just get anothe r36GB and raid them?

    Yes, indeed, and certainly worth the upgrade in my opinion. ;)

    I would get it and use it for apps and keep the 36GB for windows. Without apps on the windows drive, it definately won't use much space on the 74GB drive. It'd be a waste of space imo and the 36GB would be fine for loading windows. Let the faster 74GB one load all your apps, which you would use more often than when you turn on your pc ;)
