2x Seagate 1TB in RAID 0 vs 1x WD Black 2TB
EDIT: this if for STORAGE (already booting off of a 128GB SSD)
I'm new to this whole RAID thing but from what I gather, it should give me a performance boost vs just normally setting up the two drives.
How about when compared to the WD Black? Will the RAID 0 beat it? Apparently, the WD Blacks lack TLER so are not suitable for RAIDing.
My applications are mainly video editing. I am aware of the data lost risks associated with RAID 0, but I'm looking for PURE PERFORMANCE here.
If RAID 0 is recommended, which Seagate drives should I use? I'm not too familiar with the various models.
I have read that the Samsung Spinpoint F3 is the best drive to use for RAID 0, but unfortunately I cannot obtain this drive in my country.
