    I've got a solution that'll keep us both happy Skullshot! How about I sell your house and I'll buy us both a RAID 5 card!?!

    Was studying for my MCSE last year and my CCNA this year, so I've been at study based forums. Apart from that I've just been too damn lazy to recreate my account.;)

    Here is a tip... You MAY be able to get smaller drives (60 or 80 GB) at a better GIG / Dollar ratio.... If you can... Great... its a better way to go... Its far wiser to risk your data on 3 60 gigs, than 1 160 gig... Plus if its cheaper, do it... not to mention future resale value will be higher... Smaller the drive, = higher resale value per gig...

    Yeah I thought of that but the 160GB drive is the cheapest per GB out there, that can find anyway.

    Maxtor 160GB 5400rpm = approx $650@cws = $4.06

    Maxtor 120GB 5400rpm = approx $550@techbuy = $4.58

    Western Digital 120GB 7200RPM = approx $780@techbuy = $6.50

    Western Digital 100GB 8MB Cache 7200RPM = approx $660@techbuy = $6.60

    Western Digital 100GB 7200RPM = approx $490@cws = $4.90

    Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM = approx $365@cws = $4.56


    I wouldn't consider anything below 80GB as I'll be buying at least four of them to go into a hardare RAID 5 system.
