Hey I was looking to get some opinions on raiding as I have zero experience doing it. I was looking to grab 2 new drives for my new core i7 comp, a velociraptor for the OS and some ~1TB hd for storage. I wanted to put these into RAID 0 for increased throughput and a speed increase but I am reading conflicting reports on the net that this actually may not be fastest, that I should not RAID it.
Anybody have any experience on what I can do to achieve optimal speed?
IE I guess my main question is will 2 different hard drive speeds actually lower my speed if they are in raid 0 versus just having seperate drives.
P.S. I mostly use this rig for gaming etc...
