I have just bought a new motherborad, chosen partly because it has a RAID controller on board.
It is an ABIT KG7-Raid.
I have a downloaded copy of the Manual. B4 i got it.
I wish to set it up to use two Hdd's in a striping array to improve disk access speed. But the manual does not say weather i have to put the two disks (not yet purchased) on the same raid-ide cable, or one on each.
I assume that i shoud put them on different IDE slots, so as both can be accessed at the same time, but the manual makes no mention, that i can see, other than i must put them on the ide slots that have raid.
Any suggestions as to which make of ATA100 HDD's are best for RAID?
I am thinking of getting a pair of Western-Digital 80Gb 8mb cache, 72000Rpm U-ata drivers.
