Maybe Hong? or Ranger....

Ok,its time to build,but my finishing touch on the hard drive is still wondering(thanks to my bud for making me think more of it)<----Enter sarcasm*


Ok...... Dual Sata Raid 0 WD 80GBs 7200?

or stick with my original choice WD Raptor Drives

Or for those that know,can the Raptor be put into Dual Raid 0?

If none of this makes sense,i might not be asking correctly :lol:

I've never had a SATA drive so I would say be a giunea pig and try em. :)
As long as it's WD and not IBM or Maxtor. WD makes 10,000rpm SATA. :)

Fujitsu(sp?) also has 15,000 rpm out,but ill be damned i pay over 500 per HD,after the cost of this mofo. :oops: :cry:


I guess what im trying to find out is would standard 7200rpm SATA150 drives run in RAID0(i guess that means dual HDs) be faster then the WD raptor on its own? Or the second Q, would be if the aforemention set up is faster,then is it possible to run the Raptors in the RAID 0 config also?

*Once again the part of putting something together i hate* but always love the outcome =/

i feel alone :goodman: or left alone
anyway,

i am using two WD 72g's raptors ( 10000 raptors) in mirror. and i love it. it took me like 13 min. to load XP on it. (i was not there all the time i think it could be faster).
if you sata controler is supporting it i don't see why you couldn't set it up.

Well, I don't trust Raid0 for simple fact that if one of the drives dies all the information accorss them becomes corrupt. Now, I know hdd's are good and all nowadays but I still don't like the idea of twice the corruption....


If I were you I'd look at a nice fat 7200 rpm with 8 or even 16 meg cache. Those raptors are nice but way overpriced.... I wont even comment on the fujitsu (they bought IBM so that's what you get =/)

I was kidding about the 10,000rpm drive. I would not put anything over 72000 in my system...I run the old AMD xp's and I don't need any extra heat source in my case. Also I just can't see those fast rpm drives lasting as long as the slower ones.
