Hi everyone:

I have two hard drives that I need to compare and decide which I'm going to use as the main drive on my system. I'm planning to find the fastest one and get one more of the same kind for the RAID 0 configuration. Is there any software that can do that for me?

HDD1: Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EADS 1.5TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

HDD2: Came installed with a Dell XPS system (1TB in size)

You didn't say what HDD2 is but "green" HDDs generally don't perform as well as "standard" HDDs. I've also read that there are issues running green drives in a RAID config.

"WD is working on a RAID-optimized RE version of the 2TB Caviar Green, although there's no word on when the drive is expected to hit the market."
