I have 2x 160GB Seagate SATA 7200RPM 8MB Cache Drives (ST3160815AS) and 1x 500GB Seagate SATA-2 7200rpm 32MB Cache Drive (ST3500320AS).
I am wondering which option will give me the best performance. Which would be faster, running 2x 160GB SATA drives in RAID 1 or would the 500GB SATA-2 drive be faster?
I am unsure what motherboard I am going to pair these drives with, but obviously it will SATA2 compatible, and I will just be using "on-the-board" RAID (not a dedicated RAID card).
Let me know your thoughts... Also feel free to ask any questions...
