4GB and RAID0 are my tweaks. A level will load in around 5 seconds. Under 10 most of them time if it does an autosave.

between 15-20 seconds for me.

I think the annoying bit has to be that save feature it has..

Load times seem decent for me..its pretty much the same as NWN2. What i hate is the dam saving it does every time i do something in the quest..while its nice..the saving part does take longer than the actual load -.-..

two HDDs, same size, better to be indentical

pros
pretty much twice the read speed, twice the write speed

cons
rather unreliable, if one fails, both drives go down

nekro said it all, if one dies you are screwed unless you have a backup somewhere.

The data loss con is there, but with a single drive, if it fails you still loose it all anyway. Still I do nightly backups on my important docs (most of which are stored on a third drive anyway)
