My Thanks to all of you who have contributed to the thread. The results are not what I expected, which makes it all the more interesting,as i fully expected only one or two who do not use raid,(being a performance orientated site).

My last system used Raid 0, however in my planned new build I wasn't committed either way.

More than likely though I will start out with one drive and Eventually go for the second ,and again with Raid 0. Apart from the price of the drive I see it as a free speed upgrade.

My last system really felt a lot snappier, when loading pages ,so would have expected that read times were better overall.
