Hard to say until you run DiskTest or AutoConfigure.

Sorry for dumb question but , is that going to be a 4 X 120GB RAID? And what type of box, and or controller do you use?

I like hardware that allows you to mix and match so I'm curious about the setup.



'the write stuff'
It's awhile since I checked, but I don't think the 845 chipset supports RAMBUS. Am I getting senile, or what? ;)

Well, Zane, even the benchmarks that AutoConfigure provides cannot take into account such things as head seek times, so whether you get 90MB/sec or 250MB/sec, the only thing that matters is 'how well does your video play'? IDE stripes typically max out at three rtv streams, despite improved bandwidth that a 64-bit bus or additional devices provide.
