Hope you're all good. I've been dithering for ages over which desktop to get but I'm looking at the below Dell. Feel free to warn me if I should change anything on the spec (sshh - don't tell anyone but I don't really know anything about computers hehe!).
My main question is that since people have said I should go for two hard drives whether that means it should be RAID 0 or RAID 1 - Dell let you choose, but I'm not sure which is safer?
I'm gonna be using for three things: vid editing, internet and email/messenger type things. No games.
Any comments would be gratefully received hehe.
