Default RAID 0 or Raptor

Im running a fast AMD clawhammer and a Gig of DDR2 400, Im debating on whether to buy 2 Serial ATA Hard drives and RAID 0 them or Buy a large Raptor. Has anyone done either one of these, which do u think would be faster. All I run is development software, a few high res games and XP Pro.

Thanks

Raptor = Faster + Safer.

The Raptor would be easier to set up and maintain. They would both be about the same in terms of performance. The best option is to get a modest Raptor, and a big SATA drive. You only need the raptor for applications/games. The 150GB raptor is a waste of money.

i agree the 150GB raptor is not worth it i think the 74GB would be worth it. Im etting one myself.

Getting double the cache and double the space on a hard drive is good for some people.

Yeah the raptor would be faster, i would go with the 74gb but the 150gb one that you can see through is pretty **** sweet.

one more question, how are you running a clawhammer AMD core with a gig of DDR2(note the "2") 400 memory unless you mean DDR 400.
