Room for 3 more if I have to do that again it will be 3 TB drives, it will be quite a while i should hope. Will post results when I have them up and running in raid configuration and post a how to with screenshots..


Sweet... Thats a damn lotta drives and a whole helluva lotta space! Which as we all know, is NEVER enough... :lol:



Yep, you have that right Ubuntu-Ultiamte-Gamers-1.6a , b , c, d , e etc. Each at ~4GB sucks the space with the quickness I don't remove them until it goes final. And keep each final for example:

24 GB in nothing but final releases. Does it warrant a TB? Probably not, but I recently lost one of my 320's or so I thought xfs_repair is a wonderful tool. Just the thought of losing 320GB yes, that drive is almost 100% full, made me start to think differently. The other 320 is under constant strain and indeed could fail as well. The 500's will pretty much idle, exclusively for backup purposes. May take the time to write a bash backup script executed as a cron job there is no-one I trust more then me when it comes to writing software... No pun intended. May feel "froggy" and take the time and write it in C, regardlessly I will post it in my programming section for others to reap the benefits.

Thats pretty good, just goes to show Sata 1.5 & Sata 3.0GiB Don't do anything for speed if your systems' not capable ;) i have the 3.0's, but no visable improvement over what you have here. I'll have to try this again after TheeMahns tweakiing page in how-to's and see if it makes a difference or not.

i dont think anyone can beat this

/dev/sda1:

Timing cached reads: 170 MB in 2.01 seconds = 84.66 MB/sec

on this machine im using Ultimate Edition 1.5 and the hdd is a 10 gig 5.25 inch quantum bigfoot, about 13 year old i think the hdd is.

and the mobo is running a celeron 400 with 256 meg of ram.
with linux it is quite useable... if you try anything other then linux, it is unbearable

Does anyone have a Solid State Drive, I would like to know how much faster(if at all) these drives are. Also, I would like to know if setting up RAID 0 will make my system faster. My current drive is a 160GB 5200RPM? (Notebook) gets about 800MB/s cached reads.
