Raid 0 question

Ok guys... Stupid question and I am sure the answer is obvious but I thought I would ask.

Using right now for harddrive... Western Digital 80GB 3.0 8mb stata only

Question

2x Seagate Barracuda 3.5" 80GB 3.0 8MB SATA in RAID 0

vs

2.5" Western Digital Scorpio Black 320GB 3.0 16MB SATA


This pertains to my media center box of which drive size of OS means nothing to mean in terms of size and really, I don't mind speed that much however, I got stuff laying all over the place. Including 2 really nice patriot 2.5"/3.5" drive cages so I could utilize that 320GB that I put in my PS3.


Build has been together sometime and is as follows: Asus M4A785TD-M EVO, Phenom 2 X4 925 @ 3.38, 4GB GSkill RipJaw 1333, Thermaltake 430w, Sata DVD-RW, Card Reader, integrated AMD 4200. Larger PS and Vid card coming for Crysis 2 and "DON"T GET YOUR PANTIES IN A BUNCH/YOU"RE AN INSPIRATION FOR BIRTH CONTROL" :)


Thanks

  1. 2x HDD in raid 0 will be faster than 1x HDD if all are using the same type of sata interface.
