2x 120GB SSD in Raid 0, OCZ or Corsair ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey.

I have been thinking about buying 2x OCZ vertex 3 or Agility 3 and set them in Raid 0. But now i got a gift card for for a shop that only supply Corsair force 3 disks.
So i wondered if Corsair Force 3 would be as good to set in raid as the vertex 3/ agility 3 disks.
I am also wondering if I should buy 3x 90 GB Corsair Force 3 disks and set in raid 0 for higher speeds. But then again if 1 of 3 disks go down my system goes down. What would you guys recomend?

Personally I feel you only see a difference in benchmarks with RAID SSD's, real world use is so fast with a single SSD that stuff is instantaneous.

If I were you I'd invest in as large an SSD as I can afford, it's easy to run out of space quick, first you Have windows, then you want games to load faster. It's fast, just one is fast.

The two Corsair Force is equal to two Agility drives.

The Force GT is equal to the Vertex 3.

If i go for the Corsair force 3 disks. Should i go for 2x 120 GB in Raid0
or 3x 90 GB in Raid 0 ? i will get three 90 GB drives for the same price as the two 120 GB drives.

I'd go with the two 120gb myself. They'll be plenty fast.
