As the title states, what can i do with 2x Ide Hard Drives. Im getting an 80GB hard drive, not 100% sure if its sata or IDE, but im thinking what i can do with this..... Im thinking RAID 0, but not sure if you can do raid with IDE Hard drives, and that my 60GB HD only has 2Mb Cache, which may be a problem. Well, im open to any ideas right now, shoot them! =)

Yeah, try RAID 0 (data stripping ?) - I want to eventually, never done it. Is it possible with IDE...?

Would i notice anything with IDE RAID 0? Because i know sata has a big performance boost, not too sure with IDE though... Especially with 2mb cache.

</div>Yes. You'll have to create the stripped partition from scratch, preferably with nothing else on either disk.
