Sure you do...loading games and such is a lot faster.

i honestly notice it. it does make a big difference. when copying files and reading big ones, the time drops off noticeably. also, when loading games, it is a godsend. a LOT of times, me and my roomate and a buddy will load up bf2 and have a mini lan party, and i load the map, when ask, "ok what team are you guys on?" then the look at me, back at their screen, and its less than half done loading the map. or when i ask, they'll just look at me and say, "shut up" lol so yeah, it does make a difference loading games.

also, when loading windows the time drops off too. with just the raptors loading windows, the little bar might go across once or twice, usually not three times. when i first loaded windows after a format, it loaded so fast the bar went across once. i was happy, to say the least.. and told my friends to watch. i rebooted, and it only went across the screen 1/4 of the length of the bar, and it was loading windows. this is at stock speed by the way (1.8ghz amd) so yeah, you'll notice

Ok, I'm about to configure my striping array and want to double check my settings to make sure they're optimal. The last information I've seen states that having a 4:1 stripe to cluster ratio is optimal. I'm going to use 16k stripe with 4k cluster for 2 raptors. Anyone have any info suggesting a different setting? Thanks in advance for input.
