Just sent my Asus out today for RMA and i think im going DFI now.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813136043

Anyways i managed to pick another 300GB SATA drive and i want to do RAID as im gonna have to reinstall windows anyways. My Question to you is should I do RAID 0 or 1. Ive heard mixed reviews of both. RAID 0 is good for large file movement but the worse for hdd failure. RAID 1 is the best for backup but I imagine it can slow things down a bit cause the computer is now doing all HDD movement twice. On my PC i rarely game, and mostly burn CD's and DVD's (Which is why I went SATA on my optical drives) so would RAID 0 be worth it. I keep a backup of my files and what are the odds of a HDD failure. On the otherhand it doesnt give that all of a speed boost ive heard. RAID 0 also lets you combine the HDD space where as RAID 1 ure losing one of the HDD's. So it seems the only advantage for 1 is in the unlikely event the Seagate fails I can just pop in the Maxtor. Well Im not sure, what do you guys think? The thing that worries me is before the MOBO failure (my fault) I had been getting some on and off below normal SMART readings for the HDD Disk but im sure a windows re-install would remedy that.

go raid-0 as HDD failures are not as likely as ppl say and you keep all you important dadt backed up if you encode avis to DVDs as well you will see a improvement in times as you will be able to get the data off the disc faster

I use RAID0 and have a 500gb as a back-up drive. I prefer the performance increase and just use another drive to back-up.

Coool, yeah im most likely gonna go RAID 0 i just wanted some opinions. If i was in a business or something i would deff. go 1 but since every 40min. my files get backed up to an external it doesnt really matter. I guess the only thing 1 would be saving me is Windows Re-install and 10min lying to a guy In india on how many times uve used the Windows disc (; Oh well though, ure right HDD failures are limited and i forgot about the gain i would get when encoding. Im also not gonna piss away 100 bucks with RAID 0. Thanks gain guys, any other opinions appreciated.

I have raid0 for the speed and so i dont loose hd space. The probability of one failing is very low.

I have the same exact setup. I use 2x250Gb drives in RAID 0 and a 500Gb backup drive.

RAID0 definitely sped up my system. Like the others said, you don't really need to worry about losing data as long as you backup your important data and file to another drive or array.
