Raid 0 doesn't make a huge diff in performace, you just get slightly faster loading times with Windows and game maps... not necesarily worth the risk of data loss from disk failure.

You could save a lot of money and get a 4400+ and overclock it to 2.6 GHz.

The MSI Neo4 F and DFI LANParty mobos are both good, though the MSI is a little easier to deal with. Both are great overclockers. However I see you want SLI.... why would you do that? Get a Crossfire board and get a 1900XT. Less money than 2 GTs, and overclocked can outperform a 7800 GTX 512.


Good ram choice, though.

Looks like a Really nice rig why not get the DFI expert I love mine

Seems like a good build you have there but i would also reccoemnd a DFI board im not suggesting a particular type but DFI boards are good..especially for that socket type.

In that case a DFI board would be good.

What's the differnce if you are running 1 Disk and it fails...it's the same as 2 disk's failing in RAID 0. You'll have to reformat either way.

The rewards for RAID outweigh the risk...I don't know about you but watching the XP Loading screen is long enough as it is, the quicker the better, the same goes for Map Loading in games...the quicker I can play the happier I am. So, if you like to wait then get 1 drive if not, go RAID

I see if raid is worth the risk. I have a question, should I get windows xp pro or home cuz I see the mobo has 4 ram slots but Im only planing on use two and I read in some thread that win home can use up to 2GB and pro upto 4GB is this true?
