Whats the best way to setup a raid 1 array? Someone said I should be using a controller card that can read data from both drives at once to increase read performance and transfer rates instead of using the one built into my asrock dual sata 2 mobo.

Transfer rates are important for this computer as it will be used as a small server.

Because each drive is only having to transfer half of the total data. It's like having two people working on the same project instead of one.

Which is exactly why it would be faster...

Thats exactly what I said in my first post, then someone said it will only be the same speed as one hdd which wouldnt make sense. I was wondering if someone could reccomend me a decent controller card that can send read requests to both drives at once?
