About a month ago I finally decided to upgrade my boot drive from a 2.5 inch HDD to a pair of SSDs. The noise difference was not so much the driving force as the performance difference (for once). Here are a pair of Intel G2 80Gb SSDs in raid 0. I put them in a Patriot Convoy so that the SSDs won't just be rattling around in my case.

In they go
500Gb 7200rpm storage drive performance
SSD Raid 0 performance

. This should be fixed now.
