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.

SSD scales really well However, if one SSD fails or the RAID fails - poof - you've got NO data RAID A-RAM SSD ULTRA II 115GB 2.5" MLC, 285/ 275MB/ s = $400 for 230GB. VS V3LT-25SAT3-240G.OEM 550 / 500 MB/ s = $375 for 240GB w/Trim IMO I'd prefer a single OCZ Vertex 3 240GB V3LT-25SAT3-240G.OEM OCZ Vertex 3 240GB single SSD -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|20-227-707^20-227-707-TS%2C20-227-730^20-227-730-TS%2C20-227-715^20-227-715-TS I recommend that you read the following article which compares single vs RAID in SSD -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-raid-iops,2848-... ; note this is only one page but it's pertinent to 'real world'. coreyb August 3, 2011 9:07:31 PM Yeah it doesn't seem worth the money for the pay off.
