Redundant Array of Independent Disks
Ideally they would be all the same drive. I've paid extra for sequential serial numbers.
There are different levels of RAID for different missions but the short version is Raid 0 = speed with no backup, Raid 1 is full backup but you lose half the drive space. RAID 5 allows the loss of one drive from a set of at least 3. There are more levels but there are entire sites dedicated to explaining it in depth. Google is your friend.
well i dony have vast knowledge of RAID configurations on hard drives.Should I just not even use the V-raptor??My main use for my computer will be gaming and internet usage,my girlfriend will be using it for job related stuff.
I would use the Raptor in another project. The SSD would make a better boot drive and 128G leaves plenty of room to even keep the swap file on it. If the swap file use is going to damage the SSD you'll want to find out during the warranty period anyway.
