I setup a redundancy using windows 7 for the time being until I can afford a decent RAID card. My question is whether or not I will have near double read speed by using it. I know that since only some software RAID has this ability, I bet I don't... but I have no idea how to tell. For everyone's information, I have an x58 board + Core i7-920 and two Caviar Black 1 Terabyte hard drives. EDIT: I noticed that I only have 2 posts. I have been a member for about 2 months and come and read threads very regularly, but I rarely post because I am merely an apprentice to some of the knowledgeable people here.
