...are you sure the soft you're using is multi-threading capable? By the looks of things you use only a bit over one core (12.5% only one core usage, the rest for win services).
Since I have a X25M 80GB I can confirm you there is no bottleneck due to using only one SSD; since this task is quasi-sequential even regular HDDs should be pretty good.

Sorry maybe I explained this wrong I have no ssd's whatsoever and the software im using uses 18% of each core hence why i said it uses 18% total! So its using all cores just not to anywhere near their max potential but to be fair the os drive i usually write is an approx 6 year old seagate

The latest SATA 6G drives from Intel with the Marvell controller are supposed to be better with large sequential writes. AFAIK video encoding is mostly large sequential writes. 2 Raptors in RAID 0 would be more economical, more space and good performance.

80Gb Intel SSD's would be a poor choice for video encoding because of their poor sequential large file transfer rates. The newer Intel drives have many times the large sequential performance of 80Gb G2.

AFAIK this Plextor drive is the same as the newer one from Intel and is a little cheaper.

I don't know if this is relevant to this thread, but I once tried to RAID0 two Intel X25 80G SSDs, and found out the hard way that they are not meant to be in RAID0 together. TRIM does not work in RAID0, and if you dont have both drives on the same firmware, you lose boot capability, MBR disappears. It was an expensive lesson.
I then went with one SSD for boot, no problems after that.

Oh, and I gained no speed increase whatsoever, 7.8 WEI in RAID0, 7.8 WEI solo.

Using WEI to benchmark SSD speeds are not precise enough? Try using HD Tune instead
