My System Specs

Default SRT, RAID0, and ReadyBoost

Ok, several questions on my mind this AM. Hope you can help me out.

1.) Can you use SRT in conjunction with HDDs in RAID0?

2.) Does ReadyBoost make any difference when you have 16GB of RAM?

1. Pretty sure you can cache a RAID array. You can only just use a single SSD.
2. Readyboost doesn't do a whole lot IMO. I'd rather use a caching program like FancyCache.

Ok, that's kind of what I figured. The eVGA board I'm going to use as a Compact Flash slot on it which I thought might be interesting for ReadyBoost but with 16gb of RAM I should never need that.

Also, I was going to use SRT with two WD Black drives in RAID0. Kinda max what I currently have. I'd need over 200GB of space for the apps I use regularly so a SSD based install seems out of the question for now.
