I'm going to buy new HDDs for my PC. I need some opinions.. My goal: 2 HDDs + Raid0 = where I'm going to install softwares/games and general use. 1 HDD without Raid(?) = where I'm goint to keep my general and important stuffs. For doing the Raid0 setup, I don't care much about size, just perfomance and reliability. Rate these setups please: Raid0 setup 2x Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB or 2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB Backup/Storage setup 1x Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB+ or 1x Samsung (One of those "Green/Eco" type) (Didn't put Velociraptors because it's kinda expensive... ) Suggestions?
