2 HDDs for Raid0 + 1 HDD for Backup
Jun 14, 2010, 1:30 AM
I'm going to buy new HDDs for my PC. I need some opinions..
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:
2x Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB
1x Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB+
1x Samsung (One of those "Green/Eco" type)
(Didn't put Velociraptors because it's kinda expensive...
Suggestions? Opinions? Please, feel free!
