the more drives you have in RAID0 the faster - with 4 usually being the upper limit - (i dont if you can use more than 4 - but i know you will start seeing diminishing returns after 4).

What he said the more discs the info is spread across the less each drive has to do makng it faster. I just said what I said because of space and heat issues. Also the more drives you have the more of a risk you take in screwing up your setup by losing one drive.

yea, true, but wat are the chances of a Hard Drive failing, its slim to none if u hav an hd from a reliable manufacturer lik seagate, and if your system is well cooled.

does a RAID set up increase the chance of a hard drive failure??

iuno, i might jus stick wit my old 320gb hd, still up in the air about this raid thing, u guys hav it, is it possible to give me a sense or % of how much faster things are with it..

look at this page under RAID 0 failure rate.

Raid5 is faster than RAID1 but slower than RAID0.

But really fast is it only with a really good Controller!
Professional Controller Cards use an own Processor with 200 - 800 MHz and 32 - 128 MB DDR Ram (of cause the high end models handle a lot of disks).

Onboard Controller have to use your CPU to handle the RAID5 Array.
As RAID5 is way more complex than RAID0 that means more data overhead to the classic bottlenecks on your mainboard (southbridge - northbridge - cpu - ram).

Mainboards with Intel ICH8R can handle this way better than nvidia based models and show a better RAID5 performance. [article somewhere on www.tomshardware.com ]

It's roughly the double of a single harddrive... nothing too bad. Just keep an eye out for clicking noises and everything will be fine. As long as you don't have any important (who knows what important is for you? ), such as work documents or music, stuff you generally backup already, you should be fine.

RAID5 only uses 3 harddrives, and is roughly half the performance of RAID-0 but with the safety of RAID-1, but RAID10, Matrix RAID or RAID 0+1 is 4 harddrives, with the speed of RAID-0, but with the safety of RAID-1
