Thank you so much. That reply helped a lot. Especially for RAM and PS issues.
Just a quick question though, if you had to, would you use the adaptec controller I have on one of the PCI-X slots or use the LSI controller on board the K8WE and sell the controller card? /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
Is there any difference? Can't I have teh same 2 RAID0s with the on board controller? I assume there might be a performance differnce with using the on board one as my controller has one channle which all 4 drives share. With the on baord one, I can use each raid 0 at individual channels. What do you think?
As per the PS, I'll give it a try with my PS once i put all the system together, if it works fine, if not, your suggestion seems like the best for sure.
As per setting up this system, is there anything I must be concerned about? Anything in particular? I usualluse one of my RAID0 as my system drive and the second set of RAID0 as the temporary drive for the batch processes, etc. And the SATA drive as the back-up. i'll setup Windows XP SP2 on this system. So any suggestions are appreciated /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />
