We are looking at purchasing a new work station with thefollowing specs.
Duel Core Intel Xeon (3.00GHz, 4MB L2, 1333)
8GB, DDR2 SDRAM FBD Memory, 667MHz, ECC (2 DIMMS)
768MB PCIe x16 nVidia Quadro FX 4600, Dual DVI or Dual VGA orDVI + VGA
Two 80GB SATA, 10K RPM Hard Drives with 16MB DataBurstCachetm
C4 All SATA drives, RAID 0, 2 drive total configuration
My question is the hard drive configuration. I've read youshould have your OS and program files on a separate drive. I'vealso read the swap file should be on a drive of its own. Can raidbe configured to stripe two hard drive while running a driveseparate for the OS and program files and run a fourth for the swapfile?
What I'm really is what is the optimal hard driveconfiguration?
