Can a 12gb/s SAS SSD be used in a Windows desktop for RAID 10 configuration?

Can a 12gb/s SAS SSD be used in a Windows desktop for RAID 10 configuration? And if so, will I see a noticeable difference in a 6gb/s standard SSD? SAS is "stand alone server", but I am not running a server. I have an i7-4770k processor in a DZ87KLT-75k ATX motherboard. I am looking for maximum performance and maximum redundancy. Any of you RAID junkies out there that could lay me out an excellent RAID 10 configuration in terms of hardware, I would be much obliged. Thanks!

    Gotcha. Thank you for clarifying that. I just checked, and my DZ87KLT-75k does not appear to be SAS compatible. You could have just saved me a big headache returning unusable parts.
