2- which board are you using?
3- Which OS?
Tell you from experience Raid0 is not really worth it (IDE/Sata 1 & 2) the only difference you'll notice is in big files transfer (1GB+) or benchmarks anything else you wont feel a thing.... better go SSD
It's a 3.5 HDD, going to use it on a FM1 Motherboard. Windows 7
