Thats a lot of SATA connections! Do you have a board that supports that or are you adding a SATA card?

There are several different types of RAID configurations so it's probably best if you check these sites out:

RAID Information 1

RAID Information 2

RAID Wiki

Some RAID setups are either obsolete and/or only used for very specific configurations. For the most part, you should just look into RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and RAID(1+0). Once you get those down, you can dive a bit deeper.

Exactly. In a RAID0 environment, the data is written (striped) across both HDD's, So if one dies, the result is complete data loss. On the flip side, since it's using both HDD's, it speed is increased.

If you have critical data (documents, photos etc) you may want to look into a different RAID setup along with a proper backup solution. If you just want to install games that take advantage of the increased speeds, RAID0 may be good for you since data loss isn't that big of a deal considering the fact that you can just reinstall the game after replacing the dead HDD.

Hello Joseph248. Welcome to pcpartpicker! This site is actually just a place for PC builders to come and plan out their next build and show off what they have already built. As far as I'm aware, no one really sells their computers on this website. However, if you wanted the challenge of building the PC yourself, you've found the right place. This is THE BEST site for that specific goal and no other site will help you succeed more. You can easily copy any part list on here, check out other builds or even check out the "build guides" link up top.

If you are just looking to buy a custom built computer instead of building your own, you can try Hardwareswap. Hopefully it's OK that I just linked that.

Good luck and feel free to reach out to any members here if you get stuck. A ton of us would be more than happy to assist anyone with building questions.

I always ask that as well. However, they are unmistakable and that may be their market strategy. When you see them, you know they are Noctua.

That's the risk of RAID0, but the benefits outweigh the risk under the right circumstances. Its a question of, "does the speed increase outweigh the risk of data loss?". You just don't put any valuable data on it.

Slick case indeed. I only wish he would have went with the fractal design instead. I'm a bigger fan of their designs.

Thanks! I normally prefer 200mm as well since they are generally quieter than 140mm and 120mm but the Noctua is king here. Also, that chassis fits a bunch of them. I think he had 2 in the front and one up top plus room for another up top. Total of 4!

Whoops! You are correct. I meant to reference the 2 cores, 2 threads when comparing against the C2Q Q8400.

I agree with you in terms of crushing single core speeds but from what I can tell, it's only about 10-17% faster in multi-core applications. Even so, it's a much faster chip overall. In terms of the dust build up, I agree that most cases should have a removable filter. At least they designed it right in the sense that you can completely remove the front panel without affecting the front I/O.

The HD7750 compatibility with this model number was a strange issue but I honestly didn't spend too much time trying to figure it out. I didn't like the fan noise and so I didn't try to troubleshoot it beyond the college try. After connecting the card and powering the system on, my monitor was giving me no signal. I then tried to connect it to the onboard HDMI port and still no signal. After I completely removed the card and powered the PC back on (once again using the onboard HDMI) I finally got a signal. I then installed Windows 10 and assumed that the card either didn't have native support and needed a driver or needed to be enabled in the BIOS with or without a BIOS update. After I finished installing Windows 10 and updating all other drivers, I searched Sapphire's website for this model and discovered that it was not compatible with Windows 10. Also, as I had mentioned above, PCPP did not list this particular model number as being compatible either. While I don't doubt that you have successfully connected other models of HD7750s, this one seemed to be a bust.

Thank you Trotterz. There isn't anything wrong with purchasing the latest parts with a huge budget but it is fun trying to get the best bang for your buck with a tight budget.

I'm a WD fan and probably will be forever, even though I hate being a fanboy. However, this Toshiba was priced right and looks good on paper. It may prove to be competitive in the future.

Thanks Geekazoid! I appreciate the positive feedback and support. I've perfected my persuasion skills and constantly plant seeds in the heads of everyone around me in order to convince them that they need a new PC. I should look into hypnotizing people...

No I gave it back to the client and told her to keep it. She can store her valuables inside and keep them safe from a nuclear explosion.

It sure is! I love squeezing every last drop of performance out of the hardware but I don't have much experience in it though. Have you worked with older hardware?
