I’m planning to use three 10,000 rpm Western Digital Rapters in RAID 5 for my dream PC that I’m getting ready to build. I want the quickest possible boot and load times from my hard drives but I also want some protection against data loss (bad experience with RAID 0). I also want to have tri-boot system (Linux, XP and eventually Vista) and am concerned that three partitions would reduce or eliminate the performance gains from my RAID array. Is this true? Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated. (Storage and back up is provided by a 2Terabyte NAS so I don’t need a huge amount of local strorage)
