    I've been thinking about installing two hard drives in my next machine. Say I had a 10,000 rpm Raptor and a 300-500 GB 7200 rpm disk. Both SATA. What do you think would be faster?

    1) Windows on the Raptor, programs and data on the second drive

    or

    2) Windows and programs on the Raptor, data on the second drive

    2.

    That's what I'm doing now. Windows and programs that matter (speed) on my main drive and programs that don't need a lot of speed (office, newsbin, etc) on my second drive.
