I just want to satisfy myself that there is a difference, i'm hoping to perhaps get a controller card and take it off the 10R when 7 goes retail, but again, will the load off the CPU actually ammount to a tangible increase in speed/performance?

Ultimately,, I do a lot of 3d modelling, and photoshop, which is why i'm playing around with this, as I want to 'settle' on a solution when I install my retail 7 and be comfortable knowing i've explored the various options open to me and listened to opinions and advice from those who's eperience is greater than mine.

But you would be able to increase your productivity the most by maximizing data transfer speeds with the raid 0 array for your OS. I wouldn't be worried about redundancy as you have multiple arrays. Just my thoughts though.
