I use 2x 30gb Vertex SSDs in RAID0 (ICH9R), and let me tell you, the system flies.

If you ever decide on raiding two Vertex drives, I can post the link to the latest firmware (1.40 & 1.41) that enables GC (garbage collection) on a Vertex SSD array (since trim.exe does not work with RAID arrays).

It effectively eliminates (or at least drastically reduces) long term slowdowns for SSD RAID arrays.

If you prefer single drive, go for it. Can't go wrong either way!
