I have a computer running a dual boot of Windows 7 and XP with two 500 gig drives running in raid 0 via the on board raid. From what I have read after setting up my raid drive It does not gain me much performance. I was wondering two things though. A: Can you use this system in a dual boot like this where it would only affect the windows 7 performance? B: Does this system function in tandem with any raid setups? I know I do not have a typical set up but I do have a lot of older games that I do play now and again on the XP platform just for the fun of it. My setup consists of a asus m3n ht deluxe MB, Amd quad phenom 2, 8 gigs of ddr2 800, Gtx 660 Ti video card. and the before mentioned 500 gig drives.
