comment Why is serial data transmission faster than parallel?
+1 for mentioning 50 pin ribbon cables. One of the motivations for going to SAS/SATA cables was that the wide cables were affecting the airflow inside the box.

comment How can I fix a computer that is infested with malware and is extremely unresponsive?
I had to clean up a system infected by ransomware. It had a similar disk performance problem that was caused by the trojan scanning the disk looking for all files/folders and setting the hidden attribute. Do a google search for 'optimizer pro removal' good luck

comment Hardware RAID - what happens if the motherboard or controller fails?
Low quality/cheap RAID is a false economy. Get enterprise quality controllers that are common and easily replaced. e.g we standardized on Dell PERC because they are good and can be quickly replaced when they fail. If you budget is tight look on ebay or off lease sellers. You will find plenty of cards from big name RAID vendors with plenty of life left in them.
