Moderate price/performance in the midrange you have the OCZ V3MI and probably the Crucial M4. Either would be fine. If you are going to raid them, I would go with the V3MI. Essentially raid will improve your throughput but likely you will see little difference in day to day operations unless you are performing tasks which require very high throughput or IOPS.
