Don't keep ANY important data on a RAID0 setup, period.

And by adding drives to your existing RAID setup (assuming that's what you're talking about), it will hurt performance. You will be limited by the slowest drive. It is ALWAYS best to RAID exact matching drives.

not too sure what you're saying but RAID drives don't have to be the same.

You probably want to head towards the fastest possible drives with generally the smallest capacity (to keep cost down) then a RAID card depending on how many etc...

get 2 more 160gb's do a Raid 0+1 or Raid 0..and DO NOT keep your IMPORTANT stuff on the Raid Setup..its risky..

If it were me, I would get surround sound or 3D monitors for that money. If you want that extra 2 core, 980X would be my choice.

160gb drives for RAID is a terrible idea unless you want to throw away money.

Go something like 3 120gb (only because thats their lowest capacity I think) with a RAID card.

Don't bother with RAID 1 particularly with SSDs it has some merits but certainly not enough.
It's ok to have your important stuff on there but I wouldn't reccomend it as it wastes valueble space and you absolutely must have multiple backups of it.

RIght now I dont have any raid going on. I have a intel x25 160g SSD that I have my OS and a few other things on, and a 640g that holds other stuff and some games. what I am wanting to so is raid my 160 SSD to other SSD. What I was thinking was getting 2 80g intel x25, and then raid them together as if it was 4 80g (basically 160g split into 2 80g and teh 2 other 80g) if that can be done. And then use the 640 as a back disk to hold everything important, or set up to copy everything in the Raid on to it or something. I just dont want to have to spend the money on 3 more 160g SSD if I dont need to, I dont need that much space.

Get another single 160 for RAID then that matches your current one.

Again though, do NOT keep any important data on a RAID0 setup. Use mechanical drives for important data.

Samsung F3 1TB drives are one of the fastest storage drives on the market currently. And they're on sale for $55 each shipped on newegg right now.

And does my MB use sata 2 or sata 3. I am not sure, all I can tell is that its at SATA 3Gb/s. Or is that just Sata? And is there a difference in raiding 2 drives vs raiding 3 or 4? does it get better performance? And should I just use the onboard raiding system? Or do I need a raiding card? and where would put it in my system that in my rig with 2 580? And was thinking about using a 9600gt as a physic or is that also worthless?

ANd I have a removable 1.5t Seagate drive on my system for back up.

You won't see a difference between SATA 2 and SATA 3 just yet.

You won't see a difference between onboard RAID and a dedicated RAID card until you break into possibly 3-4 drive SSD RAID arrays. But at that point, you'll be looking at another couple HUNDRED dollars for a RAID card (not worth the price in my opinion).

You will only get better performance from a dedicated RAID card, if your onboard is lacking. Which your onboard will suffice up to around 500 MB/s transfers (or roughly 3 SSD's in RAID0).

No, do not use a 9600GT for Physx with your setup. Those 570's are potent enough on their own. If you want a dedicated PhysX card, you'll want a GTX275 or GTX285 for your particular setup, to do that.
