I currently have a 4 drive raid array (0/1) that contains all of my data and O/S. What I would like to do is add a SATA drive to my system that will contain just the O/S and installed software (like firewall, Office 2000, Norton Utilities...etc). Then, have the raid array with my data. I am a programmer by trade, and I have a ton of programs and other data that the raid will help me protect (it is too large to backup regularly). If I can get the O/S and basic installs on the SATA drive, I can reasonbly Ghost it, and have a DVD ready to go if I ever thrash Windows.

My problem is, my case is already packed to the gills, and cooling this monster is already an issue. I was hoping for some suggestions. I would like to try and utilize the hardware I already have if possible.

So, how about:

Carte blanche suggestions-


keeping the Ultra ATA HDs in the mix suggestions:

Abit IC7-G MB
P4 3.0ghz HT
1gb (2x512) PC2700 DDR
4 x 40gb Maxtor Ultra ATA 133 HD RAID 0/1
nVidea 6800GT AGP
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
Sony CD/R - CD/RW - DVD/R
Avermedia Video Capture Card
