Here we come again :) - Part II
Just a little bit more information on my new toy (the one I am planning to get)
Even not being the fastest possible configuration it is a pretty good one :)
Why did I need such a beast: Well, working as a software developer sometimes I find myself running Eclipse, Visual Studio as well a guest OS within Virtualbox (running VS and some other programs there also ;).
So I do believe (I'm not a expert in hardware) that a 4 core processor will be helpful; in the same way, 8 GB of memory doesn't seem that much :)
I considered to get a WD Raptor but it's too expansive here; also, I'll install 2 other HDs (that are sitting in my current machine) so I'll get some performance gains due to a more distributed load.
Do you have a raid 0 configuration? How does it perform? Is it reliable?
Right now I am considering to build a Raid 0 array also but I'm not sure. My past experience wih Raid 0 was not so good.
