As mentioned, Asus A8V, Maxline II 250GB, 1GB DDR running Dual Channel, AMD64 3500+. Running XP x64 edition.
Use it for occasional gaming, but more often as a general purpose PC and software development PC.
I have bencharked the drive, and I get 60Mb/sec from it, with exactly the same profile, as shown in the review here, so I don't think there are any hardware problems.
I don't need extra capacity, just more speed. Is RAID0 the way to go then, with another drive of the same type?
