i have 2 wd 350gb drives in raid 0, but at most i only get 140mbps sequential read. bearing in mind that i have an i7 920, and 6gb dd3 at 1800mhz, i would think my pc would be a lot faster than what it is.

do you think this is what is making my pc so slow, and also, what else determines how good a hdd is?

what makes it feel slow, from power button to desktop screen takes about a minute, i know its not amazingly important, but i have seen lower spec cpu's do it in half the time.

game loading times are slow, opening programs isnt super fast.

there are many thing... i guess i will just have to wait untilli get my ssd :D 

thanks for your help
