    Hard disk access times


    Hi,

    Im looking into alternative hard-disk methods. Which is the fastest currently in terms of read/write mb per sec? Im thinking about:

    A RAID 0 with 2 x 80gb IDE drives

    A 160gb SATA disk

    or, a bit of a suprise guest, a 2gb compact flash drive with an IDE connection...

    How does the RAID 0 stack up against a single SATA?

    and does solid state / compact flash = faster access times?

    Any figures or advice appriciated!
