I have purchased ASUS P9X79 WS MO with two SSDs - 2x Samsung SSD 840 Evo 256GB
I want to setup these components to bring
the best performance.
I am planning to setup RAID 0 using Intel's SATA III onboard soft RAID controller.
These two disk (RAID 0) will be used to store OS, Program files and everyday work (mainly development, some 2d graphics and lots of GPU computation)
In addition I want to use external SATA drives for backup.
Do you think this architecture is OK or there is something I need to change?
I would NEVER put my everyday WORK and DEVELOPMENT on a RAID 0 array. If either drive crashes, you'll lose all of your hard work! Much better to get a single 512 MB drive and run it in AHCI mode.
