Single SSD Vs. SSD RAID

I'm looking to get an SSD for my new build with i5-2500K & GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128512

I was set on the OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227706

Now with some black friday specials I'm reconsidering.

I'm thinking I could get away with a single 90 GB drive like the Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F90GB3-BK 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233204&cm_mmc=BF2011_listing-_-636-_-N82E16820233204&nm_mc=BF2011_listing

Another deal I saw on the SAMSUNG 830 Series F-MZ-7PC064DAM 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147502gave me the idea of getting two of these bad boys and running them in a RAID. I know that Samsung is suppose to have a better track record than the OCZ drives, I thought the solution of 2 X 64MB would give me a setup that would perform better than a single Vertex 3.

I just thought of this idea and trying to research RAID and SSD, & TRIM.

  1. I ended up going with the Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F120GBGT-BK 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233191

    It has the same controller as the OCZ and near identical benchmark numbers.
