I just recently upgraded a good portion of my computer. Here are the specs:
-Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core
-Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 Dual Fan Cooler
-CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
-GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-Thermaltake Element V VL20001W2Z Black Steel SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower
Old PC Components
-Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 1000W
-2 x BFG Tech BFGEGTX2801024OC2E GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit GDDR3
-Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS 300GB 10000 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
-2 x Western Digital Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB 10000 RPM SATA 1.5Gb/s
Hopefully this will be a sweet setup, but my dilemma. I do not want to buy an SSD as of now, and looking at what I have, here is my question.
Would it be best to use the 2 regular raptor HD's in RAID 0 for my OS/Installed drive and the VelociRaptor for my backup storage?
I had the 2 running before, but then got the Velo. I have never had them side by side for comparison. Either way, I am debating on buying an SSD atm or starting to upgrade from the 280GTX's. I don't believe that they would compete with today's market.
