3-4 hard drives on same setup - Page 2

post #11 of 13
For a media PC a RAID 0 would be very nice since it would give better read times to find media like programs you have recorded onto your hard disk. However, I would find an external backup to go with it as well, if ever your HDDs decide to go out on you.

You buy 2 hard drives, (identicle drives prefered) hook them up to the SATA ports on your motherboard and then follow the instructions in your manual to set up RAID, I set up RAID 0 in my brother's computer using 2 300GB 7200RPM drives with 16MB cache and I noticed almost double the performance from before when he only had 1 of those drives.....and it was very easy to do and took a few minutes EXCEPT for formatting 600GB of hard drive space took like 3 hours lol.
