I am a little confused here. I own a an Intel D845PEBT2 motherboard. It has two serial ata controllers with built in RAID. I was going to put a Western Digital 100 GB 8 MB cache drive in, then changed my mind and decided to put 2 of those drives in a RAID 0 configuration for added performance, and now I am thinking instead of doing 2 seagate serial ata drives in a RAID 0 setup. My question is, which one of these options will give me the best performance? It seems the seagate drives will not perform better than the Western Digital drives, and they are more expensive, so i am thinking of going with the IDE raid instead of the serial ata raid. What do you guys think?

Western Digital is having big returns on the 8 meg drives seems like windows wants to write boot sector info to the cache, causing major data loss. go with anything else for now.
