Exclamation Suitable Raid card?

Hey guys,

Would this Raid card be suitable for 2x OCZ Vertex 2E 60GB ssds in Raid 0?

Startech Storage Controller (RAID) SATA-300 300 MBps.. | Ebuyer.com

My current motherboard has onboard raid, but when I use that the speeds from my SSDs are poor, I don't think my onboard can handle it.

I would bet the ICH10R you have on your motherboard is better than that RAID card.

I also would not expect that you should get slow speeds when using your ICH10R raid

make sure you don't do raid with the gigabyte ports, probably is a second sata controller usually by Jmicron that can do some raid, make sure the sata ports belong to the Intel chipset not some other crap chip.

The Intel chipsets are surprisingly decent for RAID. Also, when it comes to RAID cards, DO NOT SKIMP.
