Lancer...now the all important question....Are you going to fold on it?
My only comment and concern would be the 4 drives in a raid 0.. thats 4 times the chance of failure and if 1 drive fails, the whole volume fails. Thats 600GB of storage that is lost (assuming you fill the raid 0 volume) and even if you only fill it half way, that's 300GB of storage that you need to worry about backing up and restoring if a single drive in the array fails.Ok i am putting together this pc, and i need to know a) what you guys think of it for a crunching pc, and second, what kind of psu should i get for it.
5x Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive $1,149.95
the first 4 hd's will be in raid 0 and the 5 will be a standalone for the os.
