    My system came with SATA RAID 0 configured on the Intel chip. I was a
    bit surprised, expecting that the Promise chip would be faster.
    Perhaps the reported Promise driver problems scared the vendor off.

    What is the latest scoop? Is Promise SATA RAID 0 faster? Having
    already used the Intel utility to set up the drives, will that be
    compatible with Promise if I just switch plugs and update the drivers?
    I don't/can't reformat and start again.

    Thanks, Bob

    I just built a new system using the P4C800E-Deluxe mainboard also. I
    read a lot of the posting here and decided to go with the Intel RAID
    configuration because from what I understood the Promise chip uses the
    PCI bus and it slower than the path the Intel configuration uses.
    I think you will be better off to stay where you are.
