I am doing an overhaul on my computer that will require a reinstall.
I have a spare WD 250GB 8mb cache PATA hard drive.
Would I take a major performance hit if I put Vista only (all other programs on the RAID array) on the above drive as compared to my RAID 0 array of 2 Seagate 500GB 16mb cache SATA II hard drives?
I'm thinking a minor hit would well justify the ability to dump windows anytime and not have to do a full backup everytime. If I can't get a good answer before I get off work tonight I'm gonna give it a go. But it someone here knows better, they could save me the time.
