My 2 x 60gb 60XGP raid 0 array is stuffing up again, one of the drives is making a aweful scretching sound all the time (from spin up).
I am a bit sick of IDE raid 0 in that its not much faster than my single Seagate baracuda 4. I am thinking of dumping the array completely and getting another 60gb bara 4 and possibly a cheetah X15. Now I am wondering just how loud the X15 will be? Compared to 60xgp's raided (not that quiet)? Is the X15 qute at idle as I probably will not use it for the boot patition?
And if I do go the X15 is this scsi card good enough for it?

All I use my computer for is games and stuffing around on the net with a little bit of wordprocessing but mainly its games, games, games. I like a very quick computer and my last two MB's had onboard raid so I used it but lately IBM is driving me nuts:(
So is SCSI and single IDE a better speed option for me or just get a replacement for the IBM and raid away!
Thanks for any assistance as I am a total n00b when it comes to scsi!
