My System Specs


The green drives are slower than the blues and blacks. They are meant for storage drives. Would 2 of them in RAID 0 be faster than a single 640gb Black? I don't know. I don't think I'd ever run RAID 0 HDDs as my OS partition, just because about every week or two there's a new thread on this forum asking for help recovering failed RAID partitions.

From your parts list, you are spending a fair bit of coin to build a good gamer. I'd spend the extra $75 and buy a 640 Black for an OS drive, or save up and buy a SSD.
