    I've got a Dual G5 with the stock 160GB drive. I had a second 200GB drive in the machine but just pulled it out to put in another machine.
    So I'm debating if it would be worth putting a faster drive in as the boot drive.
    The Western Digital Raptor drive seems like the likely option.

    Has anyone installed one of these into a PM G5 ?
    Did you see any real performance improvements?
    Was there any additonal heat load with the faster drive ?
