yah, i would go with sata, its much better, and if youre going to build a whole new system, get the msi 865pe or 875p neo(2) fis2r (its neo on the 875 and neo2 on the 865) they both have 4 sata channels, 2 of which can be run in raid

no, it is not always 2 hard drives. raid's main benifits are a combination of increased reliabilty and speed, but not always both of those.

Buy the Fall 2003 Maximum PC (Build The Perfect PC). It answers all your questions and more. Makes me want to build a new computer even though nothing is wrong with mine.

Hopefully this will help. It doesn't include a newer RAID technology (RAID10) but it does go into great detail about the concept of RAID.

Raid is Connecting multiple HDDs together and they act as one drive.

Pros: Supposed to be faster, larger single disk space

Cons: if one of the multiple drive dies you get stuck with piece mail data and you cant do much with 1/2 a prog.

hmm Raid (10)? that must be new Ive only heard of Raid0
