    New SSD disk from Gigabyte

    Is it that slow? I would explore this option for these reasons: 1) To have a fast swap file, 2) Photshop scratch disk.

    Promise SuperTrak EX8350 PCIe x4

    If the controller has an onboard CPU as well as dedicated RAM, then it is a hardware based controller. I found it here. http://www.geizhals.at/eu/a159536.html Althow non of the sites has it on stock. by TheR 212613[/snapback]

    SATA RAID0 Controller Suggestions

    spod-- what gets dedicated bandwidth??? the sata raid controller still lies connected to the southbridge which in then shares pci bandwidth
  5. ok, if you want scsi raid, get a real controller no adaptec bs my suggestions: atto ul3d, ul4d - or - mylex u-320 scsi raid

    Wtf? Pci 33/32 Burst @ 144.8mbps

    also when you overclock the pci bus - it widens it as well

    Adaptec HostRAID performance, anyone?

    i'm gonna have to say that a 180gxp can put up more than just 30mB/s i'd say around 45mB/s, they do outperform the wd 'jb' drives
  8. zoom8112

    Which 80GB ide drive

    the 180gxp is tops in perf now, i would get one if you dont like ibm, the 800jb would be my next pick

    U320 Poor SCSI Performance

    the raid controller sucks get a real card like: atto ul3d, ul4d ami megaraid 1600, 1650
  10. ami megaraid 1600 dual channel u160 with dimm and battery backup ami megaraid 1650 " atto ul3d dual channel u160 with raid software atto ul4d " any of those would be awesome

    Software RAID versus hardware RAID.

    winxp pro can do software raiding, but you will not be able to put your os on that drive/partition if you want a bootable array, you will need a hardware raid card

    Asus P4G8X-D or Gigabyte GA-8INXP

    i agree with odeen the 6 phase power circuitry is what does it for me on the gigabyte board
  14. isnt that dell/perc controller an ami megaraid 1600 ???? if it is, its a great performing scsi raid controller for raid 0 arrays www.amdmb.com has a review of it up can you get one with a battery backup??? i would go for that

    Creative vidcards

    many companies simply rebadge products as their own elsa, before it went out of business, had visiontek make its cards ironically, visiotek burners are rebadged lite-on drives
