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
- 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.

The RAID 0 will be faster, but twice as likely to fail and more expensive.
with raid 0 if 1 drive fails, you lose the data from both drives. 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.
Thank you for you're comments and answer. Ill keep in mind this info.
