Sata3 Drives in Raid 0 or SSD Tags: NAS / RAID SSD Storage Last response: May 18, 2010 1:29 AM in Storage Share xizorgetspeed May 17, 2010 7:26:19 PM Hey guys, building a new system here. Going w/ i7 930, and the mb is the gb udr3 the one that supports usb 3 and sata 3. I'm trying to figure out if I should get 2x 1tb sata3 drives and put them in raid 0, or go with a SSD for the OS and throw all my apps on 1x1tb drive. Here's what I do/want. Snappy feel to the OS, fast boots, overall feel. I game a lot. I encode a lot of video and would like to have multiple apps open. I'm really undecided.
