It's not $29 - it's nearer $50. And remember it's around 7 years old...

I was made clear earlier in this thread that it would slow down my boot time
they only said that because it takes a couple seconds to initialize the RAID before OS boot. not a very big deal.

and RAID also gives more storage space in addition to the speed

SSD 64gb? that will be EPPPPPICCCCCC.
but if your only storing games, a 7200RPM will be fine............ if you can get a 10k for cheap then go for it!

I'm for the 7200's. If he's using them for games he should be fine with a raid 1 array. He only needs the high speed reads, not the writes! and he's got data security.
Does the raid array influence the boot time if only files are stored on them?

SAS drives are 10k or 15k. I doubt they will ever make a 20k drive, as SSDs are now faster. High speed HDDs are a dying breed.

How good are SAS drives when it comes to Access time?

not as good as SSD's.

Thread Starter 
RAID 80GB = £20.00
SSD 32GB = £50.00

Is the question

I'd rather better game load times, etc and a long boot time than worse game load times and a normal boot time, and honestly, its round 5 seconds on my motherboard, go make a coffee or something when the computers booting up.

Last Gen, etc drives and controllers are really cheap because of companies selling them off to go to SSDs or newer HDDs.

A C300 would cost more probably, considering you can get an entire server with 4x 36GB C320s, a 1.8Ghz Xeon, etc for US$125.
