Hey you know where the graph slopes down really bad on your pic of the 2 320gb seagates well i was doing a run of HDTune Pro and it slope down just like yours did when i opened up the windows media player and google chrome.. Did you do anything while the test was running?? (Ex.open any text docs or programs like internet or anything???)

I'm not really sure if you can do the Samsung Spinpoint and the Western Digital hard drives in Raid0 mode because im pretty sure you need more then one hard drive and they have to be the same Brand im pretty sure and even if you could do raid0 with them you wouldnt see much of a gain if any gain at all because of them being 2 totally different hard disk's like the Brand's and the Cache is even waaay off. But hey buddy you said you have 2 other ones you dont use are they both 250Gb hard drives and are they the same Brand are they Sata or IDE?? But if there exactly the same the 250's then you could definitely put them in raid0 mode!!!! Oh and as long as your mobo supports it or if you have a Raid Controller...

You raid disks of vastly different RPM's and come back with this?

There's a quote floating around here that you 'could raid ham sandwiches if they had sata ports'. If they had the same size, this would be true.

The other 2 disks is a WD disk witch 16mb cache and the other is a Samsung with 8 mb cache, 250gb each and 7200 rpm. They score the same in Sandra benchmark.

Well i probably just buy another Samsung F3 1TB and do Raid 0 and then partion it?

There might be an offer in a swedish online store to buy Crucial real SSD C300 128gb for half price. If so i might youst go for that one instead and skip the raid setup
