Samsung NCQ or 2 HITACHI Raid 0?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What would be faster, a SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series HD160JJ with NCQ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...rd+Disk+Drives, or 2 HITACHI Deskstar’s 7K80 HDS728080PLA380 -0A30356 http://www.abspc.com/app/search.asp?...fer=pricewatch
running in disk striping (Raid 0?)

And also does the Asus P5LD2 natively support the disk striping, or should I get a separate controller card for that. I know the hardware method is tons faster, but I’m not sure if the MOBO has it built in and if it’s the most efficient way, or certainly suitable at that.

2 Drives in raid (no matter how large they are) will always be faster than 1 drive not in raid (no matter how large it is).

The only thing that beats out Raid's performance is Western Digital Raptors...

Most 3.5" Hard Drives today run @ 7200RPM, before they had 4200RPM, and after that it was 5400RPM, but raptors run at 10,000RPM. And having 2x raptors in raid will beat out 2x 7200RPM drives, or 1x Raptor will more than likely beat out 2x 5400RPM drives...

So, basically i'm saying to get 2x 80GB hard drives. Just so you know RAID-0 is performance, not storage. For storage, I belive you need either 1 or 2 more drives.

And yes, 80%-90% of most boards after Jan. 2005 had/have raid capabilites.

What are you talking about RAID-0? I know its disk striping which is performance/speed based, and not data protection. I think you would need RAID-5 with Parity for that; ...yea with at least 3 HD’s and that would cause a 1/3 total storage space overhead.
