SSD Raid PCI Express 1.0

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm new to Raid but would like to speed up my hard drive for reduced bootup/load/video delays. I currently have a low end Kingston 128 GB Sata SSD. Would like to get a few small SSDs and put them into a Raid controller to increase the speed. Any thoughts on a good controller (I have one PCI-E x1 slot available)? Any recommendatinos for hard drives? Any recommendations for how to port from existing drive to the new Raid?

Thank you
My System

PCI-E 2.0 1x is only good for 500 MB/sec full duplex, therefore outside of two SATA 3 Gbps drives you will be bottlenecked by the interface bandwidth.
