I was talking to a few people and was told that no RAID cards support TRIM over 0, only the internal RAIDs on Intel 7 series motherboards, and that there would be very little performance difference between motherboard RAID 0 on SSD and a RAID card for RAID0 on SSD. So I guess I will have to look for a mobo with the 7-series chipset and use the card just for RAID5.

RAID0 (or "Suicide RAID") isn't really meant for your OS. It's more for a scratch drive, temp files, cache, etc. Stuff you 100% can do without. RAID0 increases your risk of data loss. Why would you want to run your OS on that???

180 degrees out of whack. I can easliy reinstall my OS. I use RAID 0 for performance which is why I install the OS and programs on it. DATA is stored on a RAID 5 for integrity.
