Hey guys and gals
I just recently purchased two wd Raptors 74gb at 10,000 RPM.
But im trying to decide on how I want to set them up.
Im a big gamer and also I do alot of computer graphics
as in alot of photoshop, 3DsMax, aftereffects, illustrator
etc. I have been debating or not if I want to do the whole
raid 0 thing or if I should put windows xp pro and all of
my computer graphics programs on the first hard drive
and all of my games on the second hard drive. I have
searched through alot of the RAID topics on this forum
but have not really found an answer to this. I know raid 0
is fast, but is there benefits to keeping them seperate and
having the OS on one and all your games on the second?
Or should I go with a RAID 0 setup?
I know with RAID 0, if one hard drive goes bad you loose
all of your data, but backup is not really a big deal with my
internals because I have a 250gb external that I put all
of my important files on.
If you need to know about my computer setup it is in my Signature.
BTW, I have also googled this question and have not
found an answer.
Thanks for the info ahead of time!
