EVGA GEFFORCE 7800 GTX 256MB/GAME
EVGA GEFFORCE 7800 GTX 256MB/GAME
SILVER XNAVIGATOR 420W[SIL,BLK,BLU]

My question pertains to the Raid Function on the 2 74gb Raptors. I've never had 2 hd's before, and I left out the raid function because I wanted to find out which would be better for gaming: Having Raid-0 striping, or no raid at all. What are some advantages of Raid-0 vs no raid? I'm going to be using this for high-end gaming, high-end rendering, 3d modeling, etc.

Just wanted to know everyones thoughts on this, should I install raid-0 or leave the drives as they come?
Thanks,
del

sorry this is my first post I don't want to seem like a mooch, I will be back any help much appreciated
