With regards to RAID 1 + 0 …. Should I use 4 x 250 gb or 4 x 500 gb? The games I play are World of War Tanks, World of War Planes, Rome II, Sho-Gun II, Men of War Series. I do have other drives for pictures and documents. I’ll be using SSDs’.

Neither. Get a single 500GB/1TB SSD if that is what you need for your OS, applications, games, etc. and then back up regularly.

RAID 0 SSD's will accomplish little for performance and RAID 1 won't replace a proper backup.
With the money you would spend on 3 additional SSD's you can do a robust backup of your whole system to disk with room to spare.

So I guess RAID is a thing of the past when it comes to gaming. That is SSD's changed it. I read an article here that says "RAID 0: Great for bechmarks, not so much in the real world".I guess the ones who really need RAID are the ones who do raw AVI captures, and other types of video editing?
Thanks for the info. TyrOd
