Nope, I assembled everything in there, from the video card to the processor to the power supply (I even had the case custom-built). I didn't clarify ... I have two WD Digital HDD, both with 69GB. on the bootup, it shows 0 - WDxxxx 69GB and 1 - WDxxxx 69GB (where x is a bunch of numbers identifying the make and model).
On the 300GB, I put pictures, our working files, and video. On the array, I left all the necessary files for XP Pro to work, plus some working files, the online games, and all music files.
And yes, you are absolutely correct ... it is not shoot-m-up games I play (I'm a little too "seasoned" for that... if you know what I mean LOL). It is cooperative flying games (they take a ton of memory). I have given up the games for family time, so the computer is no longer used for online games (I just didn't have time, and I didn't change the computer to adjust for no gaming).
Now, this evening, the computer started up. Extremely slow, and no CDROM or CD-RW drives showing. Additionally, I have no internet connection. I was able to get into the Control Panel and the add/remove program, and there was nothing there. Also, trying to open up anything having to do with the system causes the computer to hang. I need to do a hard reboot just to get everything back.
So, with all that said, would you suggest that I do a RAID array and use the 300GB as a backup? If not, like I said before, I am open to any and all suggestions (although I would like to keep a RAID array as I did buy the two WD HDD drives.)
Oh yes, here are my system specs:
AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 4800+ 2.41GHz
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo
nVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX
2GB Corsair RAM
XP Pro 2002 - SP3
Memorex 52x CDROM
