Two 36GB drives striped for a total of 72gb. $640 worth of drives and another $240 on the controller.

SATA RAID 0 is competitive and can be had for a lot less $$$$. I just wanted to make sure I had the fastest thing out there right now, though PCI32 is holding me back.

Dazz, if it's any consolation I still have to pay for it. And when you only make 30K a year you can see how that purchase might not be a very good use of my available fundage. Some would say extravagant, actually...

One of these days I'll grow up and start handling my finances like I should. I'm trying to keep it off as long as I can though... ;)

Nice, but unless you're running a server, I have to question why?

I work with some large files fairly often. Rip DVDs and then compress them. The extra speed helps a bit there. Boot times and load times have also been reduced noticeably. Was it worth that much money? No. Did I get a noticeable speed increase? Yes. Kinda comes down to one of those "If money was no object.." type of things. In my case, money was an object and I shouldn't have done this since I couldn't afford it. But oh well, I'll just have to exercise a bit more restraint in the future.

The array does rock though. :D
