 I want to set up a raid 0 array w/ 4 320 gig seagate SATA drives. Would this be that much better than a 2 drive array. also does anyone know the probability of this array dying in any givin year?

 

thanks for the help.

With more drives, obviously there is a higher probability that a drive(s) will fail @ some point. Why do you want a 4 drive r.a.i.d. 0 setup, it seems excesssive to me although I have no expirience with raid?

 I want to zone really really fast.

 

I'm kinda going overboard w/ this new computer I'm building.
