    Default Backup or Raid

    Hey everyone

    I am finalizing the specs of my build and I had been planning on doing Raid 0 with 2xWD Caviar Blue 500GB HDD, but as I come closer to building it, I began to wonder if I should just use the 2nd drive as a backup of the comp. I will be doing gaming and video editing on the comp. I do like fast load ups, but I guess I could substitute this for the security of my data. Lemme know whatcha think!
