RAID 0+1 (If thats what I'm thinking you meant by 10) would be his best bet, but it would have the same speed as 4 drives in RAID 0. Only difference would be that he has backups if one of the HDD's fails.

Remember that the more drives you have, the higher your seek times will be.

Crazy your getting off topic I just wantedto know if you can.
Know that I belive you can do it all I have to do is buy the controller.
Because my school has a tons of WD 20 Gbs than i think would help out a someold computer there and It for a project in my free time here in school

Raid 10 can be duplicated with another set of 4 drives (making 8 total..wow)

Also known as Raid 100. Again...cute.

You would probably want to run a hardware raid 5+0 card if you were using that many drives, the performance is quite good according to most of the benchmarks I've read. http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_cont...ptor74&page=10

Also you need a raid 5+0 card which are not cheap and also an open pci-x slot

Exactly

So you can't Raid 8 drives In Raid 0 but In different raids.
So the highest amount drives use In Raid 0 Is 4?

He answered your question.

He's not off topic.

Anyway, 4 good drives would be better than those 20 giggers since they probably are 5.4K RPM, ~2MB cache, and have probably been used for a while and don't have much life in them anyway.
