Well, I'm not the most informed, especially considering I've never done RAID before.

I would totally do the 50GBX2 in Raid0 ONLY IF Raid supported TRIM. Although maybe garbage collection is good enough. Though I did read one comment somewhere where the person expressed an understanding that the Sandforce SSDs have worse garbage collection than indilinx. Whether that person was well informed I do not know.

So, I'd rather continue to have TRIM support. I'd say bite the bullet and get a 120GB SSD. Going from 50/60GB to 120GB is supposed to have a decent increase in performance too. You could stick your 50GB into a laptop or sell it.

I have a 60GB Agility that I want to stick in my laptop once I finally decide on a 120GB Sandforce to buy.

cheers
