It should be great for most tasks, including gaming.

I have a question...should I even bother setting up RAID on the SSD's or just configure them both for what programs install to where? What I mean is have it set that the OS is on the 128gb and Steam and all games download to the 256gb.

I would drop the 256gb SSDs all together and just get a 3tb HDD, but it's up to you. You could always do two HDDs in RAID-0. The benefit while gaming on SSDs will be minimal.

But, SSDs can decrease the loading time of games. Well, maybe that is not important though. biggrin.gif

That's a rather marginal benefit relative to the cost of two 256gb SSDs. The only time you notice a difference is in initial load times, once in game it's no different than a traditional HDD.

Well I already have them so I might as well use them right?

If you can't return them, absolutely.
