Western Digital Caviar Black Question

Hello, I've been wondering if it is better to get two "WD1002FAEX 1TB" drives instead of one "WD2001FASS 2TB" drive?

I need to have a partition for my PC games installs and another one for data storage from my old drives (I'm retiring my old drives because one is about 7 years old "WD 80GB IDE" and the other one is about 6 years old "Maxtor 250GB IDE")

I know that the WD 2TB is a tiny bit faster than the WD 1TB but I have a feeling that having two separted drives whould be more reliable, safer for long term storage and maybe faster than a single massive drive.

So, what do you guys think about my decision? :sol:

  1. 2 drives in Raid0 ?
  2. Nope, I dislike Raid so I don't use it ;)
  3. then a single drive would be better.

    Single > two smaller

    Two Smaller RAID0 > single larger.

    hope that helps
  4. In what aspect is a single hard drive better? :??:
