I just ordered two hitachi 80gb SATA, and i've got a 80gb maxtor that I can hook up to SATA with a converter. Should/can I set up all three in a raid 0, or should I just set the two hitachi's up and attach the maxtor as an ide?

Actually you can set RAID 0 up with many drives.... it is BEST for them to e identical....

but they don't have to be...

 

the drive size will use the smallest availabel and then add them together...

 

so yes.. the 3 80GB drives can be used in RAID 0...

 

but the performance isn't usually noticible better than 3 drives......

 

maybe do the 2 new ones as RAID 0 and then the third drive as an IDE backup drive.....
