There's no write penalty compared to four single drives....
Unless you have an actual dedicated RAID card for them there will be.

Yeah, that's RAID5.

TRIM doesn't matter on every drive.
Yes it does. It decreases wear leveling and speeds up garbage collection and thus, increases overall life usage and performance.
Quote:
Shortening NAND modules to what, half? OP didn't imply this was a server.
More lifetime usage = better = higher resale value at a later date as well.

Who cares? What does the possibility of it being a server or not have to do with anything? It is for a personal rig.

With RAID 5 the OP will have to get 5 drives instead of 4 for the same capacity....that is now 5x 500GB = $1750 + tax for 2TB of usable space. And now it has a decrease in reliability, performance, and everything is consolidated to a single volume. Thus, higher data risk.

Your money, your call. As mentioned earlier, though, you can save quite a bit going for 1TB drives and if all you want is each of those categories getting its own drive letter, then that can be easily accomplished thru partitioning.

Although personally, I'd just segregate them into folders. That's bound to be more efficient use of space.

Do you really need to separate Steam and Orgin games? I highly doubt you can play two games on the same PC at the exact same time. As for your OS drive you shouldn't need more then 128GB, since you plan on not having your user folder and games on it.

If you have the money for 4 x 500GB SSDs, why not get 2 x 1TB SSDs and then get a 2-3TB HDD to copy backups? Put your OS and user files on one SSD, Put your games on the second SSD, and run a scedualed backup to copy your userdata to the HDD. You could even make a monthly backup of your OS, excluding user data, on a monthly basis and keep two or so backups just in case you need to reformat.

I can see the 4 x 500GB working right if you were buying enterprise hardware and needed lightning fast storage, but for a home user it's just not practical cost wise.
