I've built countless PCs over the last ten years. When building my own systems, I usually purchase one small HD (approximately 150GB or so) and two large HDs. I use the small HD for Windows and installed programs. The two large HDs are configured in a RAID 0 stack for speed and are used for data (My Documents, saved game files, etc.).
I'm about to build a buddy a PC for Christmas (ha..lucky him...and he doesn't even know it's coming.)!
I'm wondering if there is a better way to configure the HDs for speed. Currently, I'm thinking of using the 150GB WD Raptor drive for Windows and two 500GB drives at RAID 0 for storage of his data. I know that's good, but I'm wondering if I can do something better.
Your thoughts and comments will be greatly appreciated.
