    XFX revo

    i was thinking of getting the xfx revo card and a third drive to put them in raid. but will the card provide and extra speed in the raid con fig as well as extra redundancy?
    considering at the moment i have no data redundancy and file scatted all over the place would this be an improvement?

    The revo is on PCI, so the speed boost wont be massive. Theres also quite a few tails of them spontaneously dying and no support seeing as netcell (the people who make the chip) have shut down.

    Your motherboard supports RAID0 anyway. Better off doing that and spending the revo money on a single larger hard drive as backup.
