  1. Haven't much knowlege in this field hence the question:

    Is the performance increase with raid drives worth the money for gaming?

    Win XP home
    P4 3.0
    FX5900XT
    Asus P4P800-E Duluxe
    2Gb Ram 4x512 mb Pc3200 400mhz

    That depends on how much the performance or your money is worth to you :p

    Always find out what the bottleneck is before you go optmizing. Maybe you just need to partition your disks better or defragment or just tweak Windows a bit to make things go faster.

    Thanks for that Nodsu, I'll give those things a go. Got to admit, those weren't even things i thought of as performance hitters
