    Hard Drive Advice

    I am completely new to building a computer and am stuck on what kind of hard drive to buy.

    This will be completely for gaming, I have 2 GB memory, E6600 processor, and 768 MB 8800 video card.

    My question is: Do I get a RAID card or some other kind? I'm really stumped on which to get to match the rest of my hardware

    Any and all input will be greatly appreciated

    Raid would be a waste of time and money.

    A fast Single drive like one of the WD Raptors or Seagate drives with 16mb of cache would be fine.

    Intel I5 750 @ 2.67 Ghz, 4gb GSkill DDR3 1600, GB P55M-UD2, XFX Radeon 5850. , Seagate Constellation ES 1 TB, Seasonic Gold 620w, Win Vista Ultimate, Toshiba 32" HDTV


    E6750 Core 2 Duo, 2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800, GB P35C-DS3R MB, ATI Radeon X1950XT, Seagate 7200.9 320GB, Win XP Pro SP2, Enermax Liberty 500w

    RAID 0 implementation is also unreliable for long term.
    "I know nothing."
    Cheers.
