Well it seems that everyone here do not really promote raid 0 for gaming because it only effects the loading time. I actually like that joelmex about “Vista 64 will load much faster in a raid 0 then a standalone”.

It is just any data written to disk 1 is also written to disk 2. You get a nice LCD, Intel Any other advise pls?

Anyways my questions are: Yes to raid 0 or No to raid 0. What will be the max RAM it can support on win7 64 bit?

It’s a heavier notebook, almost as large as most 17″ offerings, but asuus features, build quality, warranty, and accessories add up to a very good overall package.
