My System Specs


for max results RAID 5 is not to be done if you don't have a hardware raid controller with it's own chip and memory, otherwise it will consume a lot of cpu power for all those parity calculations. Best arrangement with consumer class hardware would be SSD for boot drive, 2x7200rpm HDD in RAID 0 for apps/swap file/scratch disk and slow and large HDD for data storage.
