Can pretty much any mobo do RAID0? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I believe it has to have it's own CPU/ram on board to be vastly superior, or it's not much better than onboard. Ask Duckie first tho before he corrects me.

PCI RAID cards would probably be less effective. PCI RAID cards are host-based like the onboard. They use your CPU for processing. In addition, the PCI bus is limited to 133MB/s shared for ALL devices.

For a more effective RAID card, you need a PCI-X or PCIe hardware RAID card with its own CPU and memory. These are $250-$800 new for a good home user one.
Once again...

Thanks for clearing that up.

So honestly, grabbing a $50 raid PCI card wouldn't do much as far as performance goes on Raid 0? Compared to the typical single drive Sata?

If that's the case, I'd rather just pick up a new motherboard with Raid0 support over a $250+ card? If I didn't want to break my wallet that is
