[Shane Ross] "If you want to Raid them and have some protection, I suggest getting the CalDigit Raid can RAID 5 those 3 drives."

Although this is a very useful solution, it will not work with current Mac Pros. The CalDigit RAID Card only has the ability to talk to the motherboard of 2008 and earlier Mac Pros. In a 2009 model it can only talk to HDElements connected externally.

A 3 drive internal RAID 0 is the fastest, cheapest option, but David is right to recommend a firewire backup drive for your data. A three drive stripe means that you are three times more likely to lose your data.

Want speed and protection? Get an external RAID 5 option.
