    As for myself, I'm more of a PC builder-dilettante. Or rather I used to be. I don't have the time to even be a hack any more. Anyway, I put together the following in about 2003, maybe 2004.

    SYSTEM: Win XP
    MB: GA-8KNXP Ultra Rev.2 875P chipset
    RAM: Mushkin HP3200 (1&1) 2GB
    CPU: Intel p4 3.00GHz
    BIOS: FJ 9/2/05 Version GBT -42302e31 Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
    VIDEO: (Diamond) Radeon HD 4650 AGP 512MB GDDR3
    HDDs: Fujita MAS series 15k 36GB x2 (SCSI in RAID)
    DVD: Plextor PX 880-SA (SATA)
    POWER: Mushkin 800W XP-800AP
    CASE: Antec 900

    Just recently started playing with this dinosaur again. It was originally just a audio-rendering workstation. Didn't even connect to the internet because I was running an older Pro Tools rig that required the use of specific outdated drivers for stability. Since then it has been repurposed into a gaming rig, then after the original G-card went, it sat for 2 years in the dark. (Audio card went bad too. Working with on-board audio at the moment.)

    So I bought a new G-card (see above) and after installing, I noticed that my dvd drives were not working. Ah, that must have been yet another reason for retirement at the time. No prob, I'll just go get a new one, right? Well I bought a SATA dvd/cd writer figuring that it would be that much easier to install.

    NOPE. No power to the unit, no recognition from the system. No way to load my new G-card drivers.

    As it stands right now, I need help getting my SATA dvd working. Been reading about a lot of problems and potential fixes, but all with various differences from what I have going. My understanding of computers is not comprehensive enough to adapt methods from even somewhat similar situations to my own specific issues. I just don't have the time to experiment anymore without some guidance.

    1) Need help getting my system to recognize my dvd drive.
    - tried various settings in BIOS as advised from various posts on the topic from this forum and others. But I don't mind starting from scratch.

    2)Need help getting graphics card drivers to install. XXXXX Disregard. I figured out my problem. Starting to come back to me now...

    3) Also remembered that, way back when, I was trying to upgrade my memory, so I bought 2 sets of the Mushkin HP3200 2GB. Could never get system to stabilize with 2nd set installed. Was in the middle of working that one out when old G-card died. It will be an issue again after I resolve the above.

    I'm sure there will be questions for me to answer. I know I'm forgetting something... Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
    Did you get your issues sorted out? It may just be that the cable is bad, or the drive is not compatible?

    As for GFX drivers, I'd suggest you download the latest anyway and not install them from an old CD.

    This is my first build so I might have something wrong but I helped my friend do one last year and it still works fine so I thought I did everything right. I went through the troubleshooting questions in the video card manual and still nothing. A couple forum users are discussing this at http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ga-8...26/#post365561, but no solution there yet. Can you help?

    Other components are:

    - ASUS SATA Optical Drive

    - 1 TB SATA Seagate HD
    Are you using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

    Did you test the card in another system yet to be sure it was not DOA?

    Default Raid 0

    Question, which do you think would be faster? I have two WD V/R 600gb sata 3 hard drives. I am running them now in RAID 0 on ports 0 and 1. I would like to run them off the sata 3 ports. (6/7). Wanted to know which would be faster because they are run off two different chip sets. 0/1 is intel and 6/7 is Marvel i think.
    My set up so far is:
    X58a-UD5 rev. 2
    I7 930 moving to 980x in a week
    Corsair Dominators 2000mhz at 8-8-8-24-2T
    HAF-X case
    Corsair 1000HX psu
    Meg. Shw CPU Cooler
    Sapphire 5870 vapor-x in crossfire

    I cannot fine any information on the rev. 2 board online except gigabyte website and I tried emailing gigabyte support and was told just to run them off the intel ports. The purpose of buying a board that have sata 3 is to use them. But if they don't work, then it a waste.

    Want to know which is faster and if the marvel is best is there any driver needed to set this up and get it running.

    it will probably be faster on the sata3 ports but marvell drivers are terrible,you will have slower read/writes on the intel but they will be 100% reliable

    Drivers aside, the Marvell controller just can't handle RAID reliably, especially if you bench it often or move large amounts of data.

    So you would be better off keeping the array on the Intel ports. It performs great with a single drive, but not so hot at all (More like SATAII) with a RAID Array on it.

    @ Superdinmo

    What card do you have, and do you mean BIOS or drivers?
