So long as you have a way to backup your content and important files, a RAID 0 setup is optimal. Performance does scale well as far as I know.

depends on what youre doing, raid 0 doesn't help load times much. If you are doing photo/movie editing then I would go for the raid 0.

Then get the one 240gb one. If you need more space you can always add another.

I'm not gonna do RAID 0 again. No TRIM support.

Plus a single SSD is fast enough as a boot disk and for games (SSD boost is very minimal for games anyway).


You don't need TRIM, garbage collection works good.

slawter what was your problem with running in raid 0?

Bad thing is i can get two 120's for less then 1 240Gbs...

Then do that. You won't notice a difference except benchmarks and file transfers.

Voted no RAID. I wouldn't go RAID again unless you saved quite a bit of money on 2 x 120GB drives vs. 1 240GB.
