My 64 gig SSD just isn't cutting the mustard anymore. It's been fast and problem-free, but I need more space for all my games (damn Steam Summer Sale and Humble Bundles). It really sucks loading from a platter drive when you have an SSD, so I've decided to go with a pair of SSDs in a RAID 0 for a bit more speed and space. I'm currently looking at two Mushkin Enhanced Chronos drives for a disk stripe.
240 gigs at $115 bucks isn't too bad. A lot of SSDs on Newegg say there's RAID support, but not this drive. Will two of these work? Edit: Went into the specs and it does have RAID support. Opinions on other drives in the same price/performance/size range? Remember that I'm going to be buying at least two drives for this setup.
Last thing, please don't try and dissuade me from a RAID 0. Yes, I know if one drive fails my data goes with it. I'm ordering a WD 1 TB Black drive with these as well. I have plenty of backup and storage space options (7 internal, 1 external as of now) so loosing my games and a Windows install is no big deal. I just want the speed with more space for games.
