You want speed? Get a Solid State Hard Drive. A little more expensive but the speed change is well worth it. MSTS loads much quicker and the stutter between tiles is so small it's almost not noticeable at times. Not too mention that every program runs so much faster and boot up time is a lot faster as well.
I also implement a good backup strategy that consists of external hard drives, DVD's and memory cards and includes some sort of backup off site in my desk at work.
