Off hand, I would suggest:
8x http://www.kingston.com/ssd/vplus100.asp (180MB/sec sustained write)
stripped (RAID 0, you did say that you don't care about safety). That
should be 1.44GB/sec write, minus overhead.
RAID card (note that it's the internal port model, despite the image)
4x http://usa.chenbro.com/corporatesite/products_detail.php?sku=114 (for
mounting the drives)
That would be about the minimum I should expect you can pay to get that
kind of performance. Others are free to dis/agree. :)
