Unless you've already got a pile of SCSI drives, you might want to 
consider a good SATA RAID card (like the 3Ware 9500S or the new 9500SX) 
and 4 74gig WD Raptor drives.  That would probably be at LEAST as fast 
and substantially less expensive. These days, I don't think I'd use SCSI 
for anything unless I was already sitting on a pallet full of drives 
that I couldn't unload.
