Thanks to all for your input. Just wanted to let you know that this SYSTEM is UP and Running w/ WEI of 7.8 Whatever that means LOL? Haven't loaded anything but Win7 yet. Also have it hooked up to a 27" HP2711x Monitor that he bought. I am jealous and now will have to get some more Monitor real estate for my self this year.
This is an edited version of thread at OCZ SSD Forum, and these are the steps that I followed.:http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?83759-SSD-stand-alone-and-Raid-0-questions-for-Asus-P8P67-Pro
As I understand your reply the ssd will perform well and have trim support with bios set to Raid (non-member drive). As long as drivers are the latest intel rst.
From reading the MB manual there are 2 Sata controllers. The intel P67 w/ 6 ports, 4 Sata2 ports and 2 Sata3 ports, and then the Marvell w/ 2 Sata3 ports. So I am not sure I follow why not to set the Raid 0 array on the intel Sata3 ports though. As I understand it this would be faster work on editing the videos, right? The WD 640's are Sata3 Hdd's and this seems the ultimate place and way to me. I could definitely put the 1tb or larger backup/storage(maybe even Raid1 after my wallet recovers) on the Marvell Sata3 controller and then the burners on the intel controller Sata2 ports. If you have time, could you explain your logic a little more, or tell me where my logic is off."The sata II drivers are much more mature and since the hdds will not even come close to maxing out the spec i would use that controller."
So step by step for this non techy would look like this:
Install ssd only and set bios to Raid.
Insall Win7 w/ intel Raid driver "no need to install raid drivers during install, w7 has what you need till you run the rst app"
Install chipset drivers
Install latest IRST sofware/driver
Follow stickies and other info as if ssd was set to Ahci to optimize
Install Hdd's and build array
