I'm looking for the best bang for the buck solution for the new gaming rig I'm about to build. I am wondering if I'm better off pulling the HDs out of my current rig in my signature & using them. Can I even do this because they're OEM. Is using 2 Barracuda 250GB 16MB cache drives in RAID 0 going to work at least as well as the set up I have in my old rig. I'm trying to keep my HD expenses under $200, but I'll spend up to $300 if it's worth it.
My old rig in my signature will be used by a friend, that is a student, for Autocad and such. If I go with new HDs in my new machine, I'm going to wipe the current HDs & set them up in RAID 1 in my old machine.
What do you guys recommend I do? I need to figure this out before I start ordering stuff, any advise is appreciated.
EDIT: Heres my HD set up in my current machine, it's not showing up in my sig for some reasnon.
2X Western Digital, Raptor, 74GB, 8MB Cache RAID0
