I'm not sure RAID0 does 4 drives...
That array is excessive for anyhting but a server. How loud would it be?
I would agree on Ultras (note the "s") regardless of everythign else though. Unless you want to wait and get the newer 7 series cards.
Personally, My dream system right now (within reason):
>Powerfull modular PSU with sleeved cables (cause I'm lazy)
>DFI or asus mobo
>2GB premium ram
>250GB+ Seconadary SATA
>Thermaltake Armor case
>Quality 19" LCD (black)
Vibration insulate everthing, and that thing would be very quiet.
I knew somebody was going to say "Why Intel"
Well I like intel. And I know AMD is better at games, and I play games. But I also do video editing and other things of that nature. And I just prefer intel over AMD. No offense.
And yes you can do a RAID 0 with 4x drives.....
But now that I think of it, RAID 0+1 would work better. Just for redundency.
