    Thought of RAID 5 for total redundancy, at least, I can SLEEP at night!!!!
    go go go... build one with 4 x SATA 200GB RAID-5 storage system. You def can sleep soundly! Hot Swapable somemore...

    EDIT: btw, today SATA HDD is stable already. not to worry as what 2 years back.

    hmmm...give the capacitors a check then...

    google for "leaking capacitors" and you'll find quite a lot of info on this...especially http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=195


    unless, of course, you have already decided to upgrade!

    Still no faith in SATA.

    I think 4 x 200's a bit too much.. probably get a SCSI system by then heehee.

    I did dude, I've already changed the motherboard & CPU up.

    Needed a motherboard that can support > 120GB HDD also.

    Storage will never enough lah...

    Don't get SCSI, instead wait for Serial SCSI...

    after you set up your system use Norton Ghost to capture and save an image it will save you hours if you need to reset your system. More trustworthy than any raid system.
