SSD Raid Help

Hello,

I have recently built a new desktop and have installed Windows 7 and a few programs only to find that my 64 GB SSD is full. I still have applications to download and I want to maintain the awesome SSD performance. I figure raid 0 with another 64GB SSD is not a bad option but all the stuff I read assumes that nothing has been installed on either drive. Can I simply buy a new drive and change the bios settings and not have to format and reinstall? Is there a better option Im not seeing?

I have an ASUS P8Z77-V MB and an OCZ Vertez 4 64GB HD

Appreciate your insight

No. When you create a RAID array all data on all the drives in the array is deleted during the process.
So you would have to install your O/S and programs all over again.
