Default Another RAID question...

K i just ran some HDD benches on my older 320G drive, and my new RAID 0 setup. The new RAID setup( two WD Caviar Blacks, and this card) had almost double the average transfer rate, but a slower burst rate, and i have no idea why. I am probably missing something, any help would be appreciated.

RAID average: 144
320g average:77

RAID burst:114.3
320g burst:117.9

Don't be too concerned with burst rates. This could be anything, including your software because it doesn't make much sense that the burst rate is lower than the average.

could it be the card? I am using HD Tune 2.55, so i think it should be accurate. If my burst rate is that low, wont that like cap my HDD speed?

If we assume the software is accurate, clearly not.
