My System Specs


I think the only benefit to running raid 0 with smaller capacity ssd's would be the better bang for the buck. Usually a 120GB capacity drive will cost more than 2 60GB drives combined. I can tell you that you really won't notice much of an increase in performance with raid 0 over non-raid in real world usage (sure, benchmarks will show almost a doubling in read and writes but you yourself won't really "feel" like there has been much of an increase). The near instantaneous access time won't get any faster either. I don't think that giving up TRIM is worth it for 2 ssd raid 0 as the raid volume's performance will degrade overtime without TRIM. You need 4 ssd's and a dedicated raid card for it to be worth it IMO.
