Do they require a "SATA Raid" configuration, or are they pretty much plug and play? Could I combine SATA II and IDE - say the SATAII for programs, and use IDE for storage only?
I am heavy into video/graphic editing, so im looking for a pretty powerful machine.
I thought i was set on a X2 processor, but have seen many forums stating the Opteron 165 (overclocked) is the way to go.
I have never overclocked a PC before, so I need your advice.
Here are the components I have already purchased....
Case - Antec P180
MoBo - Asus a8N32-sli deluxe
Video - ASUS N78000GT
Memory - 2x(1gb) Corsair Twinx2048-3200c2 DDR400
Thermaltake Water cooler (Big Water or Rocket... cant decide)
I am looking for (1) my best option for processor, and (2) Convince me I NEED SataII drives.
One drive will hold the OS (of course) and the rest will be for storage.
