So you can raid0 a single hard drive, also what is the benefit of multiple ssd's

took from wiki:

RAID 0 (block-level striping without parity or mirroring) has no (or zero) redundancy. It provides improved performance and additional storage but no fault tolerance. Hence simple stripe sets are normally referred to as RAID 0. Any drive failure destroys the array, and the likelihood of failure increases with more drives in the array (at a minimum, catastrophic data loss is almost twice as likely compared to single drives without RAID). A single drive failure destroys the entire array because when data is written to a RAID 0 volume, the data is broken into fragments called blocks. The number of blocks is dictated by the stripe size, which is a configuration parameter of the array. The blocks are written to their respective drives simultaneously on the same sector. This allows smaller sections of the entire chunk of data to be read off each drive in parallel, increasing bandwidth. RAID 0 does not implement error checking, so any error is uncorrectable. More drives in the array means higher bandwidth, but greater risk of data loss.

heres a picture of what it is so you get a better idea.
its like dual core simply

So it's basically a failsafe to your data and speeds them up by separating the data?

Failsafe? Heck no....

In RAID1, if one drive fails, or even if you have a bad power failure, then you will lose all of your data, since they are striped to both drives and depend on each other. Honestly, I don't care what it is, I would never use RAID1 ever.

You say there is no limit? Then get a nice 4 port RAID card for about $400+ and get 4 crucial M4s and RAID10 them. That way you get the speed of RAID 0 and the redundancy of RAID 1.

Oh alright thanks for the clear up on that, learning about computers again it's like trying to do calculus after 10 years of no math lol

Raid w/ trim support will be out soon. GC in crucial m4 is good enough anyway.

^THIS, listen to this guy, if you can afford it, RAID10 that ****, speed+redundancy FTW biggrin.gif

according to tomshardware the Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 240GB is the best overall performer(source) and a OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) is also a great performer if price is not a issue wink.gif

So the m4 drives are what I should go with then

money isnt an issue?
