    Hello,

    I was wondering why a raid card is a $700 option on the new mac pro's.

    What does it take to set up a mac pro with two drives in a raid 0, and one other drive mirroring that one?

    thanks,

    r.

    You can do it in software using disk utility in OSX. Though I use Softraid.

    is there a performance difference between a software raid 0 and a hardware raid 0?
