Default Re: Raid

Yeah, I know that, but no matter, because I generally do not keep important things on my computer anyway. And if I do, I make sure to back up regularly because if I've learned one thing from these forums it's that computers are not reliable.

Anyway, I'm gonna order one of the drives tonight. Hopefully it'll be a nice upgrade from IDE to SATA.

C2D E6600 | 4GB DDR2-800 | 9800GTX+ | Asus P5B-E | 150GB Raptor | 320GB 7200.10 | 750W Xigmatek PSU

Add them in the SATA and disable RAID.
The main reason why RAID was invented was so if one disk failed, you would have all your files still :P
