Re: RAID, to?

What you should do depends upon your goals and your budget. Although to cut things short, I would suggest making a choice and then seeing how it goes and upgrading what is necessary from that point forward.

Given the number of questions you've posted I suspect that RAID-0 might be more hassle than would be optimal for you. It's extra work getting it setup, it benefits some things, but not everything, and it's extra complex if something goes wrong.

So long as you setup the BIOS in RAID mode, even if you're installing the OS onto a single drive, then it's pretty easy to migrate to RAID after the OS has been installed. If however you don't set the BIOS to RAID mode before installing the OS, then it's a lot harder to change to RAID without reinstalling.
