I wouldn't run RAID with SSD because I believe TRIM doesn't support RAID at this point in time.

I'm wrong.

I agree but not to concerned w that. Basically I worry bout where my bottle neck is goin to be. Some say onboard is way to go and some say cards. I was leaning towards using card simple to save my sata ports for other stuff.

Depends on which SSD you are talking about. If its SATA III SSDs, you want an add on card because you don't have onboard SATA III.

If its SATA II drives, go with onboard SATA ports. I don't see any advantage in addon card for that.

Thanx! I haven't looked at cards yet. I was half asleep when I made the post. What I should have said was I was trying to decide between sata 2 ssd's in raid 0 running off either ich10 or marvel vs running a single sata 3 ssd through a card. I'm pretty sure everything onboard is sata 2 that's why I said run sata 3 through card. So what
I'm gather is wait for a pci8 sata 3 card and go with
That
