My System Specs

Default Fast SSD opinion needed!

Kingston SSDNow V-Series G2 2.5", 64GB, SATA Solid State Drive 200MB/sec. read; 110MB/sec. write (SNV425-S2/64GB

Bought a pair of these planning to build a raid 0 O/S+Applications array. Saw that they were on sale ($55 instant rebate at CC) $119.99 each, so I jumped on them.

Supposedly these drives use the 612 controller.

Have yet to crack open these drives but I have until noon to return them.

Wondering if my money is better spent on a single faster driver offering more iops, or if there's a better single drive or any other SSD configuration Im missing at a similar price point.

I've maxed out my budget at $270- after taxes.

Purchases will be made at CC, here's a direct link to the SSD page:
Canada Computers - Buy Solid State Drives in Canada

I'll be using the drives for Windows 7 64 bit and games/apps. Currently running a 3x500GB seagate barracuda 7200.12 setup and after almost 8 months I've barely used 70GB of the 120 GB short stroked partition.

Running an i7 OC'd to 4.0 GHZ on an x58 chipset (asus rampage ii gene).

Thanks for the quick reply.
