I've decided to jump on the SSD band wagon, and get a couple of Samsung 128GB drives for Xmas, but unfortunately I feel the RAID controller on the Classified is a bit anaemic.
So I've invested in an adaptec 5805 dual core SAS/SATA card. Yes its expensive and involves swapping to a new install of windows but this should result in some massive speed gains.
My current plans are:
RAID 0 on SSDs
RAID 0 on 1TB F3
RAID 5 on 1TB F1 Backup
When funds permit another Velociraptor RAID 0 on those
I'll put some figures up when I've got some installing done:
RAID 0 on a pair of F1s I'm getting 205MB/s write (sequential) so I'm looking orward to having a pair of SSDs in that config...440MB/s
