    Does anyone know if there would be any added benefit from using a Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB as my secondary optibay drive as opposed to just getting a WD 750gb black edition 7200rpm drive?

    Right now my setup is 240gb owc ssd in hdd bay with my stock 500gb 5200rpm hitachi in the optibay.

    I cant remember wether that Momentus you are talking about is 5400rpm or 7200rpm. Go get the 500 or 750GB 5400 Rpm drive, quite, fast, big, what more could you want other then dual SSDs

    Get the WD Scorpio Black 750, stay far away from the XT.
