It is my same old build (built it last year) with a little sugar thrown on it now.

What do you suggest that I use for benchmarks?

Brad, I assume two Raptor X's? They are solid drives.

yessir. I don't know how much the speed is the new XP install though, so I will have to keep testing.

I am very happy with my Raptor X RAID 0 configuration. I can't wait to see how Vista performs on it (I need better driver support first).

I plan on waiting a long time before upgrading to Vista. I had a lot of problems in games and stuff and am kind of hesitant to upgrade.

yeh you will be running faster with a new install, im going through that at the mo as windows has only been on 5 days now.
would like to see benchmarks tho as a m8 has 1 raptor and is toying with the idea of 2 in raid 0 as he has fubard his new install already

glad i only spent £100 on my 2 maxtor drives, i just got 120mb/s on mine :)

not bad for 2 maxtors. i thought you would have scored higher than me but i assume the motherboards holding the raid back ?

that's what it looks like. I will have to look into getting a dedicated RAID controller.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
