Intel G2 80Gb Questions

Can you tell me the difference between these two G2 models:




I think the G2R5 comes with a mounting kit and the G2C1 does not, but they look physically different too.

1. Is there any specs that are different or does one perform better than another?

2. If I had each one of these could I put them in RAID together or would you suggest me getting both of the same?

3. Would you suggest one over the other? Why?

First link does not work.

You would be correct, sir. If you look at the product pictures, the models are the same. The former just includes a mounting kit.

They should be capable of raid.

Nope, not unless you absolutely need an included mounting kit.

Fixed link. I do need a mounting kit since I am using it in my Antec1200 that has 3.5" bays

Where do you intend to purchase these drives, if I may ask?

SSD access times are so much faster than HD, I pulled one of the two X25's I had in RAID-0 and will put it in another system. RAID-0 gives great transfer rates, but can't see a difference in normal use. Better to get the benefit of SSD in two systems.
