Ok well I'm building a new machine (not completely new) and so far I have a Q9550, 8 gigs of ram, and an MSI P45 neo 2 motherboard. I have 3 80 HD's (2 are brand new ones a little older but holds an OS at the moment) and plan to run them in raid 0, I also have a 1.5T drive thats use strictly for storage. I also for the time being am going to stick with the 8800GTS I have. Is there anything special I should do for this that may help boost performance or just make it an overall better computer. I'm coming from an AMD 4400+ 939, with MSI mobo, 2 gigs of DDR400 ram, and can't run any nvidia video card past the 7 series. I know its a big step lol. I've never set up raid before so this should be rather interesting. From what I understand all I'll need to do is hook up all the HDD's then start the computer, I should see something like F8 or what not to go into the raid set up and configure it correctly. Then I'd go and install the OS after that. Am I correct in this statement?
