I currently have a 2tb samsung F4 and am looking to achieve two goals:
-Significantly increase my storage speed
-Set up a backup solution
What I'm looking at right now is getting four Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s, and setting them up in RAID 0 on my P8P67 Pro. This way, I can have a fast RAID setup (no plans on getting a controller just yet - I think my 2500k should be able to handle it), and I can use my F4 to do nightly incremental backups.
My main question is will I be able to use these SATA3 drives on the four SATA2 ports on my motherboard without any issues? Will it even affect the speed, or is SATA2 more than enough?
