Re: Help me choose hardrive(s)
RAID0 essentially double's your speed but it also double's the risk of you loosing your data. I'd recommend one drive for now. If you do end up doing raid0, i recommend having a couple more drives in raid1 for data backup where you can store an image of the drives, so if one fails, you can reload the image and not have to reinstall any software.
RAID on that motherboard should be straight forward as the others. It's usually just a matter of using the built in software. Just select the drives you want, the RAID setup you want, and hit create. It's that simple.
