I do not know whether or not to buy two 8MB ATA 133 Hard Drives or a single 16MB cache SATA Hard Drive. I would extremely appreciate any help.
If I buy the two ATA 133 Hard Drives then I would put it on my motherboards integrated raid (0). I haven't ever configured or used a computer in raid 0, so I don’t know how efficient it is or how fast. I also hear that when running a computer in raid 0 you have a chance of data loss. This is going to be a home computer so I don’t have any clients relying on me. I don’t mind small or insignificant data loss, but I still want performance.
Which do you think I should choose?
Which of the two is more reliable and could potentialy last longer?
Particularly looking at 2 of these in raid 0
Do western digital raptors offer more performance than both ATA 133 in raid and SATA 2 hds?
