Just had a look man...

My slower burst rate is probably because of the fact that the more drives you have, the slow the access times become, however...

All the HD benching programs like HD Tach & HD Tune give different results simply because they use different methods of testing:

Can you run a HD Tach for me, on 32mb zones?

For comparison, here is what I mean about varied results:





The read speed on HD Tune seeems to be the more accurate considering this is a 3 drive RAID. However the Burst rate on HD Tach seems to be the more sensible result as well because I can't see a 3 drive RAID having a low burst rate???

I don't think you are going to be beating this even with 2 Velociraptors:



The price of 3 WD640AALS drives is amazing considering the performance. This is also with the onboard 780i controller until I buy a Dell PERC 5/i
I can give you two SSD in RAID0 at those settings. I love these things, I am working on getting another and a PERC 5/i RAID card.

That is beastly... Get a third!

But one difference.. You have 60GB of space whilst I have 1.7TB... And they much have cost a BOMB!

60GB is nowhere near enough for my liking. I'd want all my games and stuff on it as well you see...

I finally rolled the ball, get the VelociRaptor installed. It is now doing all the game installations for me.

I can tell you how fast it is! Using my previous SATA1 drive, it took 40 minutes to install Call of Duty World at War. With the VelociRaptor, it took only 15 minutes!! And it is not hot at all. I use my fingers to feel it, and it is only slightly warm, and nearly cold in fact. I am very impressed and happy about this drive. It is smaller than other drives. And I find it worth the money!
