RAID and Raptors

Thanks to Totally-braindead for input to my last query on 14/1/07

However, the questions still remain....
.....would an additional hard drive with both configured to RAID 0 see an improvement in performance?

Would it be worth considering Raptors as part of this upgrade?

A pair of Raptors on Raid O may well see an increase - it just depends on what you are upgrading from.

Can you paste the link of the old thread here.

I'm not sure where to go from there but someone with more knowledge should be along soon :-)

I have pair of WD Raptors on RAID0, so does Kate B. There is without doubt a clear increase in speed, I did run with just one before buying a second. The RAID controller you use will also affect performance, that included with the nVidia nForce 4 chipset is a good one. Before setting up for the first time I sent a query to WD support about the stripe size to use, they recommended 128KB for a home PC and that is what I use.
