Thinking about getting (1) SSD 64 gig & running OS off it.
Can I run all 3 in a RAID 0 array - and would this be suggested?
Do you recommend a Raid Controller?
Build in process:
Intel i7 920 CPU
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX MOBO
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Thermaltake VH6000BWS Armor+ Full-Tower
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W PSU
Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000HLFS 300GB
LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer Black SATA
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
pretty sure for raid 0 with those drives, you would only use 64GB of the raptors. I'd suggest that the SSD (if you get one of the new ones) will give you a lot of speed. Is there something specific you are dealing with that is slow, or you just want "fast"?
for some benchmarks, it isn't even close. For a few, the raptor beats some of the slower SSDs. Of course, you have quite a bit more room on the raptors than the SSD, and for video that could be an issue.
Raptors in raid 0 should be very nice (no redundancy, make sure you back up elsewhere though)
