What do you guys think? I do alot of gaming, video editing, photoshop work, and stuff like that. I also need another gig of ram. Do you guys think i should go RAID? My current hdd runs 62mb/s for the "drive index" with a 13ms access time.
are you joking? if anything the screenshot shows/proves that RAID 0 with two drives almost doubles average read speed. i seriously hope you are kidding. I would like to see your single 320 go over 70 read speed....my dual 320's are at 120 average usually.

you'll have to reinstall windows, the raid setup is usually a option on your motherboard drivers disk

I never said that what was posted was bad.

I just said i dont i would get a big performance increase. At least not one worth the hassel of re-installing windows and my nearly 40gb worth of programs.

I get 62mb/s.
