Since I own an aerocool VM101 and 7600GT AGP from Leadtek is out , I want to give it a shot. My only concern is this ...

ABOUT THE 2 NEW DRIVES TESTED!WHAT ABOUT LOWER in GB MODELS?

Well that was a very good Comparison , but I think that the models with lower capacities must be checked out!! There is a Maxtor Diamond Max 10 (6B200PO) with 200GB and 2 platters and 4 headers instead of 3 platters and 6 headers of the 300GB one. This drive could be very very close to the Baraccuda...
