  1. Forget RAID on a PC. RAID is for servers.

    MANY threads here on this..

    If you want speed get an SSD (64 or 80GB) for your C: drive.

    Install large data on 2nd hard drive, external drive or NAS

    RAID 0 is not going to gain you speed, just trouble.

    Best,

  2. I couldn't have said it any better.

    Infact, you might even lose some performance.
  3. Since SSDs also use RAID0 internally, following that argument he shouldn't buy SSDs too. Though i guess your point was that messing with onboard RAID is unreliable and can lead to dataloss; but i wouldn't agree with the statement that RAID is only for servers. The principle behind RAID is used throughout any computer.
