Help me pick a storage strategy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, here's my situation.


Currently in rig-limbo waiting for Sandybridge stuff to come out, as I skipped this gen of Intel and AMD chips. I'm on an AMD 9850, 4gb RAM, MSI 5770, but an ASUS m2n-e mobo. I have an NZXT Phantom case, so 5x 3.5" bays and 2x 2.5" bays.


Sata storage wise, I have:
1TB Caviar Green
750GB Caviar Green
500GB WD (no color, just some generic one)

I also have a 500GB USB MyBook (it was a gift...didn't want it!)

I'm planning on getting a 64GB C300 for Win7, programs, and the games I play most often. Do you guys think I should get an F3 or two, or maybe RAID my other drives? The 3 SATA drives I have are all 1.5+ years old, so I suppose I'm a bit worried.

I don't think you can just throw a bunch of disks of different sizes into a raid, unless it's JBOD. I also have a F3 1TB for storage, and love it. Runs consistently 3 degrees cooler than my other Hitachi 500GB.
