I purchased a Systemax Beast IV last feb and have already suffered 2 hd (Hitachi) failures. Luckily both were fully backed up to my external hd. It costs me about $80 each time to send the system in for warranty repair. I have ordered two WD Caviar Black 640 gig drives and I am setting up a raid array. Which is better / faster for me? Raid 0? Raid 1?
My system looks like this:
Vista premium 64
AMD Phenom Quad Core 9550 2.2 GHz
Asus m3a78-emh hdmi mATX motherboard
8gb DDR2 800Mhz PC6400 - 2GB x 4
Sata 20x DVD
Fantom 1TB eSata external HD
I am a noob at this. Any help is greatly appreciated.
