Got to say what a good set of drives the spinpoint are too. Ive got a 500gb (£60 back in december)and its is so quiet compared to my 2 250gb seagate's ive got in also , very relible too, but im not even using it to its full advantage im using a PCI sata raid card. Ive just got it back from samsung as my psu blew something on the controller board but they replace it under warrnty lol, but im considering gettin this now and using the spare sata port on the pci card then i would have 2tb lmfao :proud:

I dont understand this, Does that mean you cant have 1 drive with 1TB, Does it mean it has to be split into 3 drives, and raided toghter ?

No

The 1TB drives contains 3 platters internally which make up 1TB. This acts as 1 drive in your OS. The platters are just the way these hard drives are made ie a 500GB HD may have 2x250GB platters

If your motherboard is original sata then you can still use this drive, but you will only get sata speeds i.e. 150Mb/s not 300Mb/s (which sata 2 is). So you could still use it yes.

Guys even when running a RAID 0 with 2x 1TB drives the max read performance I can get is around 130Mbs on a SATA II connector.

I think anything over 150Mbs is not really possible with consumer gear.
