Raid 0 or bigger? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a 64gb. I won't be getting a bigger one.
It's because I store all my stuff to 'store' in my 2tb external. I'll put all my games into the hdd, and I just wanted to raid it because if I 'wanted to' in the future, I'd have to wipe all my games and reinstall after I raid. So... I might as well do it now?

seq read/seq write...right. that's barely half of the story. Access times come into play + chance of losing everything.


U need 1tb of space for games? How many games do u have? will it take up 70-80gb of the ssd? i mean games that you actually play. let's be practical here. there're ways to get around to transfering games you dont play as often to ssd's whenever u need to, but i mean, if u play like 10 games, let's average it out to 5 gb each, that's 50gb total. plenty of space in your ssd for games like that.

Seems to me you got hit by the ever so often never ending upgrading bug.

iirc, you had a budget in your build. now it seems to be spiraling haha

considering that i have about 20 games on steam that i may play at any given time, depending on who i am playing with i do need a lot of space. Wow and Rift alone take up 50gbs. Sure there is a chance of losing information but there are many things with risk involved. You going to tell someone not to get water cooling cause it could spring a leak or not to overclock cause they could ruin something. The F3Rs are built with raid in mind so the chance is slim and if you have something so important losing it would be catastrophic than i would suggest backing up those files.Also not sure when you have ever seen my build because i have never had a thread directly concerning my build but sure i have upgraded some stuff but i dont see how that is spiraling : |

I agree, you can be paranoid if you want to, but unless there is crucial data that you can't lose (in which case you're not doing raid 0 anyway) it's not that big a deal.

The chances of a drive dying is slim, raid0 doubles that chance, so it's double-slim. As it stands performance means risk, f3 raid is one of the cheapest, most reliable performance enhancements there is.

Kick, with all due respect, you need to grow some balls haha. Life is all about risking, in my experience. If you don't take the risk, you'll always be the same boring person with the same boring life. You risk to gain more.

I've already stated that I back everything up with my external 2tb drive.
Also, yes. I do play many many games. I'm a game freak, and I share this computer with my brother. SC2, Dia2, Dia3, SC1, Wow, Dota, Hon, MS, CS, CSS, TF2, L4D2, Mafia 2, JustCause 2, BC2, MW2, CodBO, LoL, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Assassins Creed 2, N4S HP, Shift 2, TestDrive Un 2, Blur, F1 2010.
I also tend to store all my songs, and believe me, I have ALOT, in ALAC in the HDD, not the External, because I have the hard copy (CDs) as well so I might as well save some space in my external since I have countless movies and shows all in 1080/720p.

Never ending upgrading bug? Wrong. I've already bought my rig, and now I'm just in need for some components like HDD. However, I'd like to end this here by raiding my drive since if I decide to raid it later, I'll have to erase all my games and media to raid it, which means I'll probably never get to raid anything ever.

Yes, I had a budget of 1500, and it accounted for the HDDs, lights, and window. I've spend around 1200 so far.

Please don't assume things about others so much.
