When they are the same size, otherwise it mirrors the smallest size.

"A RAID-0 array's capacity is based upon he drive with the smallest size. So if you RAID-0 a 60GB drive and a 256GB drive the total capacity of your RAID array will be 120GB (60 x 2)."

Just found that quote, good thing you pointed that out!

+rep for catching that. Woulda been a nasty 15% restocking from newegg haha

Option 2:
CPU: 4770k or 4930k
GPU: SLI GTX 780
Mobo: Maximus VI Extreme or Rampage IV Formula
*Air Cooled*
Monitor: Samsung S27B970D 1440p monitor 60hz

Man why not pick up one of the Korean 1440p monitors. They are a hell of a lot cheaper.

No problem, if you are looking for some nice cheap but really fast drives to Raid 0. Check out the Sandisk Extreme SSD. The 480GB goes for $328, and the 240GB for $170 @ Amazon.com thumb.gif

Not only that, the RAID would be unstable. Raid loves it when the drives are exactly the same and in doubles. I have had several multi-size raid 0 configs fail due to the different drive sizes.

Also check out the Plextor drives. As fast as the samsung 840 pro and cheap!

With a build setup like mine I don't really feel like going cheap on a monitor like that is a smart decision. There is a reason why it's cheap like that. Talked with some people that have those and the issues they mention are something I wouldn't want to deal with.

May have to check out both the drives you and BiG Stro0nz mentioned if I can't snag another 480 corsair for cheap. Was lucky enough to get that first drive for $325 BNIB.

I have two good friends with these monitors, and they have no problems at all. It is ultimately your choice, I just didn't want to let you go and spend $1000 on a monitor with other alternatives out there.

I really appreciate that! Glad to hear that comment, this overclock community seems to be extremely helpful/thoughtful. Always better to say something than nothing at all! Wasn't trying to shoot you down or anything lol. Good looking out though, much appreciated man! thumb.gif
