This is for a gaming PC. 2 120GB Maxtor hard disks in RAID 0 with Promise controller card. Around $275 USD. 2 37GB WD raptors in RAID 0 with promise controller card, and 1 120 GB Maxtor IDE drive as storage. Around $420. Again thank you, your opinion means a great deal to me.

For me personally, I would go for the faster drives and raid card and buy the large drive alittle down the road-after a few more pay checks. jammydodger June 13, 2004 11:13:10 AM 1x74Gig Raptor + 1x200Gig standard WD drive. You will def notice the difference in access time. For gaming you wont really notice the advantage of RAID0. <font color=blue>P4c firstname.lastname@example.org 512Mb PC4000 2x120Gb 7200.7 in RAID0 Waterchill KT12-L30 Abit AI7 Radeon 9800Pro </font color=blue> Can't find your answer ?
