Should I upgrade to RAID0? -
| posts: 23 | Location: Canada
I just bought a new gaming rig, and unfortunately I did not consider RAID0 when I was building it. It has not arrived yet, so there is still time to express ship parts.
What I want to know is, how much of a general and gaming performance will I see if I buy a second HDD and RAID0 it? I am using a SSD for OS and important games, the HDD will be used for mass storage and games I do not play as often. Specs:
MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III
8 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz
Crucial M4 128gb SSD
Hitachi Deskstar 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB cache SATAII
As I said, the SSD is large enough to fit the games I will be playing the most, so RAID0 will not affect that. I have never used RAID before, so this concept is new to me. Advice?
Oh, and did I make a good choice picking the Crucial M4?
