That's very good to know

A new SATA drive is going to outperform an old SCSI drive. Don't waste your time on SCSI for your home PC unless you need increased reliability (SCSI drives are designed for heavy workloads 24/7, all SATA drives are not with the possible exception of the WD Raptor).

I got a 2x36gb Maxtor Atlas 15k in raid-0 and it is much faster than my old raptor raid array. They are older edition 15k drives but they still outperform the SATA drives. Per drive has a max transfer of 68mb/s so it is slower compared to the new modern SCSI 15k drives. I got top 2 disk array benchmark on those slow ass 15k drives beating the new raptors. (here anyway)

I just recently purchased 2x 146gb Maxtor Atlas 15kII drives which have 98mb/s max transfers. Should be much much closer to the 4 disk raid arrays. Might even beat one of em.

That's very good to know. However I'm not feeling adventurous when it comes to SCSI. Considering I've been living on an IDE drive for the past 3 years and I'm just getting SATA now, I think it will be plenty for a while. Eventually I'll get another and Raid 0 them.

Thanks for all the input everyone!

why not get 3 more seagates, and use 4 seagates in raid-0. it'd be awesome for speed.
