Ultra-high SSD performance solution needed.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I have to get a quote together for a client build and it involves pretty much some of the top-of-the-line hardware that is out right now and I need an SSD solution to go be on par with it. Looking for at least 240GB of space and RAID0 is certainly an option. This build is all about the performance.

Other specs are:

LIAN LI PC-P80 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower

2x EVGA 03G-P3-1599-AR GeForce GTX 590 Classified Hydro Copper

EVGA 141-GT-E770-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 E-ATX mobo

Intel Core i7-990X Extreme

Patriot Viper Xtreme 12GB (3 x 4GB) DDR3 2000

Get the 480gb vertex 3? Having trim support is nice otherwise it's good practice to enable a few tweaks. I seriously recommend >240gb my vertex 3 240gb only has a few new games on it and only has 30gb free space.

He is going to have 2x 1TB drives as well for storage and pretty much only plays one or two shooters. (2 to be exact) as well as a lot of benching. I never met someone who liked to benchmark so much but doesn't know how to build their own PC. Whatever, though. He's paying so I'm building.

So the Vertex 3 is all that right now? What about instead of 480GB I get him 2x240GB and RAID0 them? Would that be feasible?

Well the Classified 3 uses Marvell 9128 for the SATA 6gbps, which isn't that great. The SATA 2 is provided via ICH10R.

The Vertex 3 can reach about 500 MB/s on the ICH10R, sequential read, and the maximum bandwidth on the ICH10R is ~600 MB/s. So a RAID 0 would be severely bottlenecked.

The ICH10R, from everything I've read, works better than Marvell 9128. I think you'd be better off in this instance getting 1 really big SSD vs RAID 0, though RAID 0 (on the ICH10R) will definitely benchmark higher than a single Vertex 3.

IMHO the 590 are not worth their price tag..... I'd go 580s or 6990s... I'm not sure on the SSD tho...

6990 review


580 reviews

590 review

Yeah 3 or 4 3GB 580s over 590s
