I actually appreciate threads like this. SSD's are all that and a cup of coffee...but....I miss the sound of my raided arrays crunching away. Perhaps it's just for nostalgia sake, or I'm old fashioned...I don't know.

I've got a couple of 80gb Raptors from HP lying around...and after looking at them on ebay, I can buy them for 20-30 bucks, I may just get motivated to playing around with a raid array myself.

Please continue to post your experiences with your setup, I for one...enjoy reading threads along this line.

I have an extra(well many extras)LGA 775 socket set ups lying around, I'll probably do it in one of these. What are the specs of the pc you're using?

That takes me back to the days when I had a pair of 74gb raptors in raid 0 very fast but made my desk rumble.
