I have 2 wd raptor hard drives running raid 0, ran out of space. I'm adding 2 more same wd hard drives and upgrading to windows 7. What do I do first and so on.

Why add more raptors? Get an SSD, it will be faster than the raptors for boot times, and a 2TB HDD, they use 500GB platters and are faster than raptors too, it will save you money and give you plenty of space. Before you do any upgrading though, make sure you burn all of your important data to DVD. Back it up on an external HDD as well if you have one but make sure you have hard copies of the important stuff.

SSD FTW! Raptors suck. My 300 gig VR is collecting dust. It's only 9 months old.

Heh, can I have your old VR? I'm using the 1st gen raptor still cause I can't afford to upgrade that.

If you want space and a bit more performance, go with a Velociraptor- 300GB's and a bit faster than the original raptors.

Kinda wanna sell it, but nobody wants to buy it because SSDs are better.
