You can do this for multiple hard drives. It doesn't matter the disk capacity. Basically it just takes all the hard drives, and combines them into one hard drive. So it is recognized as one virtual hard drive. But there is no performance increase or security.

I guess, if money isn't an issue, but you're basically paying a $300 convenience fee for it to come overclocked out of the box. You'd be far better off giving your money to me....I mean....what?

Secondly, the Q6600 is basically two E6600 mashed in on chip, gets alot hotter and therefore is not as overclockable. Since vitrtually ZERO games use even dual core technology to the fullest right now, it may be a bit overkill to jump and get a q6600 now. If you REALLY love a quad-core, wait till intel comes out with a true quad core, rather than two core 2 duos mashed together...

Supreme Commander uses multicore quite efficiently...and all the DX10 titles coming at the end of the summer will as well.

i would suggest getting an Phenom FX or Phenom, at least an 780x mobo to support 2 graphics cards *RD790 is crazy*. I cant believe i wanted the RD790 so bad that it's not worth it, lol stupid Wildside *palm to face*.

if ur going to stay with intel n want a true quad-core from them, since reading about the Q6600 is just 2 E6600's together, i suggest waiting for Penryn, it will be 45nm, which will be considerably OCable.

if money isnt an issue, then i suggest just getting the RD790 from AMD, 2 high-end Phenom FXs, 1 or 2 HD 2900 XTXs, that X-Fi with 64 VRAM, PhysX Accelerator for Crysis or other games *for me, Hellgate: London*, Hitachi 1TB 7200 RPM HDD, Raptor 36GB 15,000 RPM HDD, n last but not least, Artic Silver 5 thermal paste, and a full tower of ur choice.

P.S i highly not recommend the last paragraph, because that is my ultimate dream computer that will never happen with me lol.

^Yep....he pulled a khan on us. But why only 7950GT? They are not top of the line, in this budget. It should be either the 8800GTX or Ultra. The PhysX wouldn't be necessary, because the 8 series, can handle the physics. And that monitor is big, but has such a low resolution.

Metal heads suck.

Black with gold hardware Gibson Les Paul + a huge Marshall tube = orgasmic.. Surely, you have a few grand to give to me with you saving 20k and all...
