Hey everyone, I'm at a bit of a crossroads. I need more room for games and programs on my OS drive, but I'm not sure what would be most beneficial. I could either get another Corsair F60 and raid-0 them together and have about 120 gigs of space with a decent increase in speed. Or I could bite the bullet and get a new 120gb SSD like a Corsair Force GT or OCZ Vertex 3 which would give me a much higher speed but would double the cost compared to just an additional Corsair F60. I'm also a little wary of getting an SSD with the Sandforce 2281 controller on it with all the problems I've seen on the forums. What would you guys do in this situation?

I'd avoid the Sandforce 2281 option, myself... but equally, I'm not sure I'd want to go to RAID0 on SSDs and lose TRIM.

How much would something like a Crucial M4 set you back, if you could sell the F60 and recoup some of the cost?
