Hi,
I am thinking of setting up my two hard drives(Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 Sata-II 500GB) to Raid0 configuration. My question is, do you think my hard drives are too large of a capacity to do this? or does it matter? I'm looking for faster performance. Usually you use something smaller, like 150GB. My Evga 750i FTW SLI motherboard does supports Raid.
Thanks

The size of the drives is irrelevant.
The speed advantage of RAID 0 over two drives is so slight it's not even worth bothering with. Plus if one drive fails the array falls down and you lose the entire lot.

Thanks for your help. I may go to a faster Hard drive.
