HI guys Im in the process of building a new PC, and am looking to buy the first hard drive next week, the PC is going to be used as a Media centre / Gaming machine, I have been looking at buying a 150GB Western Digital Raptor hard drive, the plan is to use 3 hard drives in the computer.

Drive 1 – 150GB raptor used for the OS and installation of games and software
Drive 2 – 1TB Hard drive at 7200 rpm 32MB, used to store all media files film and music
Drive 3 – 300GB @ 7200, used purely as a download target.

I have 2 questions about the Raptor….

1. is it worth it? (your thoughts)
2. will it experience performance restraints with using other types of hard drive in the system as well?
