post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok so i decided to build a computer for my friend and used the exact same specs as my comp except for the graphics card and hard drive. i have created the fastest hard drive ever. i took 2 u320 scsi 70gig hard drives. (scsi has a speed of 320mbs) and hooked them up in raid 0 to give 150gigs at a speed of 640mbs. it it so fast u will not believe it. i installed need for speed most wanted ant it took around 30 seconds. wot do you guys think

I thought RAID 0 just combined the speed of the hard drives, not the size. 2 harddrives seen as 1 harddrive of the smallest size, but doubled the speed. I thought RAID 5 (or something) did that and you needed 4 harddrives (2 are basically striped together to double the size and then those 2 pairs are combined to double the speed). Maybe someone can correct me. Anyway, that is pretty fast. How much did those harddrives cost?

You get the space of each drive and the speed of each drive when you combine them.

I have two 250 GB seagates in RAID 0 and I have 500GB and twice the speed of one drive.
