RAID will only increase sequential read/writes which is rarely used. If you're a video editor or someone that needs to toss around massive files, then it can be beneficial. However, RAID won't increase access times or random read/writes, so it doesn't help normal desktop use or game loading times.

I think IOPS is the most important factor and reason for having my SSD's. The performance I experience while using my computer for regular use. Read/Write times is not that important.

And yeah, Running SSD's in RAID is a waste of money in my opinion.

I use 2x 80GB X-25 Gen.1 SSD's in RAID 0 for my gaming partition though. Only reason is I got them for a good price. But then again, I already have X-25 Gen.2 SSD's for OS and programs install. So I had nothing to loose by running these two Gen.1 SSD's in RAID. They do not support TRIM anyway.

As to using a perfectly good SSD for Harddrive caching, I think it is a waste. However, people who have very small (30 - 40GB) SSD's laying around could benefit from using these for harddrive caching in a Z68 mobo..

We don't need DVI/VGA/HDMI in our Motherboards because our graphics cards have them right?

I feel like we could shave some costs by not getting a MOBO with any of those 3.

I personally would get a Z68 since its not much more and if for some reason you sell or RMA ur GPU you can use on-board which i think its very useful if you dot got backup cards.
