GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Raid-0 Tags: Motherboards NAS / RAID Gigabyte SSD Product Last response: August 3, 2011 9:07 PM in Motherboards Share coreyb August 3, 2011 10:05:36 AM I am thinking of getting the GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3-B3 and using the Turbo XHD- Full Automatic RAID 0 to raid two 115GB SSD A-RAM SSD ULTRA II ARSSD11GBU2. Will this work? And if it will work is it really worth it on an average gaming rig or would 2 fast HDD get the job done for most people.
