Two SSD there was just a guy yesterday saying the Revodrives do not boot very fast but once booted are the fastest thing around. The dual SSD will boot in seconds and be fast enough you wont feel much of a diffrence.

I am saying go with the two SSD. I think both will be fine though.

I think you are better off with one larger SSD.
It is simpler to manage, and larger ssd's perform a bit faster.
Whatever, it is a major boost over a hard drive.

Larger ssd's are made up of more nand chips that the drive can access in paralled. Sort of an internal raid-0 if you will.

It used to be that if you used raid-0 for a SSD, you lost the "trim " capability. That hurt you when the drive started filling up.
Today, if you have raid-0 using a Z77 based sata adapter, there are new drivers that can pass on the trim command.
Anything else, there is no trim.

Raid-0 shows up well in synthetic benchmarks. They push the ssd to high queue levels using apps that process large blocks in an overlapped manner at high(30) queue depths. . But normal apps are not coded the same way, We mostly do things one at a time, and not overlapped. So you may not see the speed you expected.

Thank you
I can get that with this board ?
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
or only Intel Motherboards ?

to wait for ssd 335 or 525 In November?
Will have Improved driver
for raid 0 ?


Yes, it is a Z77 or 7 series chipset. Any brand Z77 motherboard should be OK.

I see no real advantage to waiting for 335 or 525 series.
Performance of all SSD's is remarkably similar.

As to raid-0 with a SSD, I have tried it. I originally had two X25-M ssd's in raid-0. Not for performance, but for a single 160gb image of the "C" drive. It worked OK. Later, I replaced them with a single 160gb X25-M. Yes, synthetic benchmarks looked great, but with no difference in performance that I could detect.

My advice... don't bother with raid-0.
