Okay I'm in the process of building my new PC and the one I am on now I have two SSD's in Raid 0. With that said I promised myself that I wouldn't bother with getting two video cards and 2 ssd drives. I just wanna get one SSD and go but my question is. This will be used for gaming and I bought the Samsung 840 256 pro. Will I be losing any speed by not raiding two drives together or will I not notice the difference and that with todays SSD drive since my last build 4-5 years ago that by staying with one drive it will be just sas quick as two in Raid 0?

You will not notice any real world difference, especially in gaming. If you are a bench mark freak, then yes it will look faster to a program. But personally, especially with the 840 pro (thats what i have), the SSD by its self is plenty fast for the average user.

One SSD Vs. Two In RAID: Which Is Better?

You will not see any real difference. Especially on a gaming system.

You will not notice the difference, putting the SSDs in raid will improve your sequential read/write but not your random. Most things you load in game are short and quick other than loading the level and just having an SSD versus a traditional HDD is enough. Plus losing TRIM support due to RAID is a bummer.
