Pick option 3. Get one Intel 520 240GB. You will NOT get TRIM on AMD rigs with RAID (so there goes option 1). SSD caching is a solution in search of a problem. Get a big enough SSD and USE it as an OS drive. (there goes option 2). Install the Intel SSD Toolbox, run an optimizer schedule for once per week...and never have to worry about TRIM on your single drive. BUT stick it on the AMD southbridge controller...not the ASMeida controller...AMD southbridge is less than optimal BUT its still better than the ASMedia controller!

YMMV
