Thanks I have a identical 64 Kingston SSS would you recommend a raid 0 for it? Can a raid 0 be set up with a existing os drive? How much maintenance would it require

A big disadvantage of using RAID with SSDs is that it prevents TRIM commands from working, which in turn can cause the long-term write performance of your drive to suffer.

I personally avoid RAID because it adds more stuff that I'd prefer not to deal with. If I wanted a 130GB drive I'd just buy a 130GB drive and not two 64GB drives.

NO!

If you set up RAID 0, you'll have to reinstall the OS to the array.

But like sminlal, we don't recommend RAIDing SSDs (even though I have it on my rig). Many factors go into it.
