what drives to get?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm building a pc this month I already bought the antec nine hundred case, an optional fan for it and the evga 680i SLI NF-68 A1 motherboard.
I want two drives in RAID 0 and a storage drive.

The SATA and RAID drivers should be on the provided disk, but do check for updated drivers too!

If you're looking for performance grab some 10k rpm raptors, or if you have a SCSI controller laying around grab some Seagate Cheetahs at 10k on ebay. For the storage drive I would have to say Seagate FTW

IF you need less than 500GB hard drives, get Seagate Barracuda 7200.10. If you need 500GB or larger drives, get Seagate Barracuda 7200.11.
Once again...

cause other then that all we are doing is just throwing random ideas out that might not help him much.
