What is the difference between SATA 3.0Gb/s vs Serial ATA150 HDs?
I wanted to buy 2x http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16822136034 and put them in RAID1 for mirroring protection.

It will work fine. SATA150 and SATA300 is cross-compatible.

Thank you for the reply! One last quick question came across me.
Would it be smarter to go for more RPMs or SATA300?

Otherwise.. let's assume I'm only working with larger files, 250mb+
Would I access them faster with..
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16822136034 (10k RPMs)
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822136062 (3.0GB/s)

Thank you again.

There is no performance difference between SATA150 and SATA300 when it concerns hard-drives. Even the Raptor barely reaches 90MB/s at best.

The 74gB Raptor is supposed to be a smidge faster than the 150 gB versions - but it's not something that I'd expect to notice during average use.

I was planning on using RAID 0 with the 74 gB drives but with the overhead on Vista I'll have to go with the 150 gB versions. I'd suspect that 2 of the 74 gB versions would work well for XP.

Okay, thank you very much. Odd there would even be a difference if there is no speed increase but sounds good enough to me.

The performance difference is because the 74GB version has two platters when the 150GB version has four. This is further offset by the 150GB version having slightly more optimized cache.
