Nice.
I think SSD's are great, but personally, I can't justify the price of one just so that my OS and programs can load more quickly. I have more patience than that.

When you're doing work on the computer, you tend to lose focus if you start to wait on apps to load/install. I am really needing to get into a SSD solution.. looking at which RAID gives the fastest speeds (RAID 1 sounds right for me)

RAID 1 sure isn't gonna give you faster speeds...

The price is high cant agree on that, but sometimes we can spoil our-selfs with some toys. Hopefully I will be happy with this purchase and there will be noticeable difference.

Plus I am in the middle of building new rig, so this will be great addition.

btw can I use ssd as a system drive and Raid 1 for 2 7500 hds at the same time?

Congrats! I'm def looking into getting one.....but not just yet. I think I will end up with one of the first gen's at a good price. I can't see myself buying anything lower than 256gb one or 2 128's at a hell of a deal.

Depends on what you're doing. RAID-1 can increase read speeds similar to RAID-0 since it can spread the load across both your drives. However, it won't do anything for your write speeds.

By the way, not sure if you can call this Intel 2nd gen exactly, since the controller's made by Marvell. Current Intel X25-M G2 are 2nd gen. The 3rd gen is supposed to be based on 25nm but I guess Intel is having problems with those since they've delayed release several times now.

RAID-1 is a "mirrored drive" so when you write, you write the same thing to both drives so its not any faster than one drive.

When you read, you can read the same thing from two separate drives/when you make a second request for data, the idle drive can provide it, so reads are faster. RAID-1 is for redundancy

Huh?? RAID 0 is for speed (striping), RAID 1 is for redundancy (mirroring). In RAID 0, you basically take two HDDs and you split the data in and out equally to both drives, giving you more speed (less I/0 bottle-necking). In a RAID 1, you pair two HDDs together and the data is written identically on both drives. Each drive has the same data, so if one fails, the other is the backup mirror image. You don't get any speed out of RAID 1, you may actually slow down some over a single HDD because your writing the data twice. You will have double capacity is size with RAID 0, with RAID 1, you only have the size of a single HDD, even though there's two drives.

As for running RAID and the SSD, yes, you can do both. I currently run a OCZ Agility 2 128 as my boot/OS drive and have two Seagate 160Gb HDDs in RAID 0.
