Help with RAID

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I got a motherboard P8Z77-m and i just found out that it supports RAID with INTEL rapid storage technology, and i wanted to know if it is a good solution, ATM i got a 3 tb HDD and a brand new samsung 850 EVO 250GB, I use my computer for programming purposes and some light Gaming, what would be my best option to get great performance and for storage integrity? should i buy another HDD or SSD?

 

Is it difficult to set up? i have no problem into clean installing windows, i need to do that anyways.

 

Thanks,

I'd get a few HDD's that are reliable and RAID the hell out of them 

 

RAID 1 + 0 is good if you have 4 HDD's or more.

even then raid 1 + 0 is good with SSD's. depends on your budget.

RAID won't do much for you. RAID is not a back-up. You're better off keeping a back-up schedule using an external disk. You won't have any benefit from doing RAID with your workload.
