    That's not how u build RAID. If u use SSD, u don't need RAID.

    All about RAID u need to know.

  2. Raid 0 must use drives of identical capacities.

    Setting up Raid 0 will erase the contents of both drives.

    Raid 0 will not improve random read speed, which is important for most activities. Ssd will though.

    Suggest getting a 60 or 120 gb ssd for windows and a 1tb drive for apps and storage.
