raid setup, using different speed drives, will i loss performance? the right raid card?
Posted on 2007-10-21
i have a dell xps 400 with a 10,000 rpm WDC WD800GD-75FLC3 (74 gig) xp home edition. and i would like to add raid with a slower hard drive, will i lose performance? i really don't want to send the money for another 10,000 prm drive. i'm thinking if i use the right card that i'll be able to do this. I've never setup a raid pc before. I'd like to have a raid 1 setup. (mirroring) i would be using a 7,200 rpm for my 2nd drive. so, what kind of raid card do i need to do this? if you need more info. please ask.
