Thanks to my discovery of this forum my video server is well on its way to being set-up (Thanks to Neemobeer). My next question has to do with setting up a RAID 5 array. As I understand RAID it provides some level of data redundancy and a higher read speed than a plain old JBOD (spanning) array. My server is built on an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard. Not the latest generation by any means but it does sport 4 Silicon Image SATA RAID ports and 4 nVidia SATA ports (configurable as a RAID array and 2 IDE ports (all four drives which can be combined with the nVidia SATA ports as a RAID array). I have four Toshiba 2GB drives connected to the SATA RAID ports. I can either create a RAID 5 array using the Silicon Image controller which will show up as a single drive in Windows OR I can configure a RAID 5 array in Windows. Opinions please?
