Question about RAID. I was thinking of using it for the two drives I have, but they're different RPMs (wasn't paying attention when I bought my second drive...) will that affect anything?

And will both need to be wiped clean? I was going to reformat my main drive when I got my new case/mobo and was going to back up games and stuff on my secondary until I got it all set up.

When you set up a RAID, ALL DATA on any drive in the RAID is swiped.

RAID runs optimally on two identical drives, but you can use software RAID between any two drives.
