you need to either do some more research on RAID or listen more carefully to what i say. i saidif one drive fails in a RAID 0 array all data is lost RAID 1 is completely different

Raid 1:
both drives are a copy of each other. if one drive fails, the other drive still has all your data
and 250GB + 250GB = 250GB

Raid 0:
half the data is written to each drive, so that the access times is faster
and 250GB + 250GB = 500GB

Question; Are the access times twice as fast?

And take out that Opteron 175. No point, drop it to a Opteron 165 and get a X1900XT or a 7900GTX.

Well if you got it for the same price as the 165 (and couldn't get the 165 for cheaper), then its fine.

But I wouldn't spend the extra money on anything other than a base processor because it doesn't affect the performance in a game.
