2 Hard Drives RAID 0 vs 1 Hard Drive Tags: Hard Drives NAS / RAID Storage Last response: November 22, 2012 2:30 PM in Storage Share olcz25 November 20, 2012 6:14:07 PM Hi there, I have a question about adding 2 Hard Drives in RAID 0 with a interface card versus 1 single hard drive. The scenario is as following: - 2 Hard Drives in array RAID 0 (2 seagate's 250GBs, SATA, barracudas, 7200 RPMS) - 1 Interface card PCI to create the array of hard drives in RAID 0 vs - 1 single hard drive of 500GBs (1 seagate 250GBs, SATA, barracudas, 7200 RPMS) Which configuration is better and faster? This is a 7400 Intel CPU Core 2 Duo at 2.8GHZ, 8 GBs RAM, GeForce 430GT Video, OS W7 X64 Ultimate Thanks for any suggestion.

If you really want a faster machine, get a SSD and a hard drive. Use the SSD for the OS, and some applications/games, and the HDD for data. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
