Thinking about taking the plunge and going for 2 small SSDs on RAID 0. I've been reading lots of conflicting opinions about this (some people even saying that there's no real performance increase with RAID!)... A few questions.... My current system is: Win 7 Asus P5Q Intel Q6660 ATI Radeon 4850 74GB Raptor (old as hell) 4GB DDR2 6400 G-Skill I'm considering either the Intel X25-V (40GB) or the OCZ Vertex (30GB). I've read that the OCZ requires a lot of firmware updating, I don't want to buy 2 HDs that need constant updating. for example, TRIM support is available as a firmware update. On the other hand, I've read other reports that it's faster than the Intel (and other's that say OCZ is better in benchmarks but not in real world). I have a feeling that the difference is probably miniscule, especially when upgrading from an old raptor. Anyone care to influence my decision? Also, is a RAID controller worth getting?
