    Hi all,

    I am currently using a USB external HD setup for backups. It has two HD in a RAID1 setup.

    I am really not pleased about it's data transfer speeds.

    Wondering if I move to an internal PCI RAID1 card instead, if the data transfer speeds would be better.

    I have a Promise TX2300 PCI RAID card, ready to use.

    This would not hold the OS, just files and backups.

    Thanks

    Heeter
