Solved Noob raid0 questions Tags: NAS / RAID Performance Hard Drives Gaming Storage Last response: October 26, 2009 12:28 PM in Storage Share Sky03 October 26, 2009 6:47:16 AM Got a couple of questions about raid0 (yes i know that if 1 fail, both hdd would lose data) 1. Does raid0 provide a significant increase in performance when gaming? 2. Samsung Spinpoint is $55 for 500gb, so 110 for 2 pcs to get raid0. The 1tb version is $80. Is the performance boost (2a.for gaming, 2b. For evrything else) worth paying $30 for raid0? 3. Do both hdd have to be the same for raid0? If yes, what do you mean same? Same size? Same rpm? Or everything the same, down to the brand?
