I've built a PC with half decent specs which are due to increase but dont want to pay the prices asked for a SSD with so little memory...

I have done some light googleing and think i have found the answer but am after abit of advie.

I want 4 HDDs which run as 2 sets of 2. Whereby, the 2 sets are mirrored and each pair are connted for speed.

To say again, i have the standard RAID setup with 2 drives working as one for increased speed but then also have the 2 drives mirrored for backup...

I have tryed to look for RAID 10 cards but havent had alot of joy. Could someone please tell me if RAID 10 is what i want and what the card to get for a home system would be..

Many Thanks in advance...

RAID 10 is what you want... but wow, what are you using this computer for that requires such high disk IO?

You stated it is for a home computer.. stripe your drives and your hard drive will not be your bottleneck.
