I'll change it, but uh... *snickers and looks at topic title* *nudge nudge* *hint hint* *cannot unsee*.
I know, I noticed that after I posed... I figured I'd let it slide. I'll go cut off his fingers in his sleep one day though.
None at all, some people forget that they have a battery backup system if DDR memory being used, if NAND memory then the backup system is a bit more robust.
Either have their pros and cons but, they are a lot quicker due to the bandwith from the PCI-e 1.0 slots, they are 3x quicker than SATA SSD, for now, wouldn't surprise me when 3GB/s cards appear this year.
For now though they are the rich mans hardware, I find it bad though that their prices are reflective upon the HDD prices, since essentially a pure SSD is chips, and manufacturers aren't in a problem area like Thailand was with the earthquake etc.
But prices will come down when they become more and more readily available and the choice to have.
As for the other question you can put the PCI-e cards into raid 1 or raid 0, you can't get raid 10, unless you have 4 PCI-e 1.0 slots, but for SATA they are good in raids, a raid 10 is doubling the speed and doubling the file security so 4 drives = double.. or you could go the dodgey route of 4 drives = 4 times the speed on just raid 0 but if one drive fails they will all fail.
