    I have a 74gb Raptor, 10k rpm sata1.5gb. Right now its setup as my main drives and holds all my programs, all other files go to larger drives. Should I keep this or should I just replace it with a 500gb 7200.10 seagate sata3.0gb? Am I seeing much benefit from the raptor? I didnt really notice a difference when I had a different drive setup as the main.

    The raptors are still faster. Access times is 8 ms (Raptor) vs 14 ms (7200.10).

    If your question is which one to buy,.. the 7200.10 would be a better option since it's also fast, cheaper, and has a larger capacity.

    Since you already have the Raptor, use it.

    I have the raptor already as the main and have a 7200.10 as storage. Im all out of space so I was just wondering if i should just get rid of the raptor and get another seagate.

    i'd rather get an external drive than change the raptor, but that's me.

    I actually have the 74gb raptor as the main, a 500gb and 400gb seagate internal sata 3.0gbs, and a 300gb external. If I replaced the raptor I would get more space without creating more heat in the case.

    well can't you add another external?
    i'd replace the 400GB with the new 500GB, and put that 400GB to another external enclosure.

    again, if it were me, the raptor would be last thing i'd replace.
    it's the fastest drive in your system.
