Also sometimes the software RAID itself can fail on the motherboard itself, which is another danger.

In the end I went with my RAID 5 setup because it was fast and safe and I would recommend it to anyone. I actually came to this setup from originally having a 2x 320GB RAID 0 setup which while fast, I wanted that extra security... Also don't worry about RAID if you have never done it before, its a piece of cake! Go with the RAID 0 setup, you wont regret it (unless of course your HDD's fail) ...
Absolutely. I would never go back to a single drive setup, ever again.

I've got:
2x 1TB F3's in RAID0 for OS and games
2x 2TB Greens in RAID1 for my storage use
1x 2TB Green in external, that mirrors my RAID1
3GB RAM Disk for pagefile and startup apps.

I just need a SSD for my OS and I'm set.

Not the EcoGreen. The regular Samsung F3 1TB drive. Last I checked, its actually $64.99 free ship on newegg. But its on sale every week or so for between $50-60 shipped if you keep your eyes peeled.

I believe the model is HD103SJ. That would be the correct model number. Definitely NOT the Eco Green.

EDIT:
Double post.

I had RAID 0 with two 320GB drives that were pulled from a skip. They worked perfectly and then out of nowhere my board died! I never got a replacement board and therefore never got to rescue my data using the same RAID controller

I'm not going to go RAID for a while
