I have just rebuilt my XP gaming box with 2 SATA drives, set to RAID0 (Striping) hoping to get better performance from my PC, but I have found that ever since I did this that the performance has decreased drematically and that alot of games are now stuttering and they are just unplayable. I am using an AMD 64bit and its like playing them on a Pentium 3.

I have done everything that I can think off to get it right, I have installed the correct RAID windows drivers and graphics card drivers and that doesn't seam to have made any difference.

A brief view of my sys specs are listed here:

I am running my system with 1gb of ram and my HDD's are both 80gb Samsungs with 8mb of cache and are spinning at 7200rpm with 4ms seek time.

I am running out of ideas.
