SSD's What to do!
Mod's please move if this is wrong section.

I have the machines in sig below.

I currently have my machine running 2 vertex 3's (never did the raid thing just use one for OS, the other for Origin, and the 600GB for Steam (i have a big library lol).

Now I just got 2 Crucial M4's should I swap them around, or should I put them in my kids and wifes system for much faster boot times, should I raid both the crucials and the vertex in my system and have a super fast system or what the heck should I do lol.


(P.S. Yes I plan to upgrade to 256GB sooner or later)

Just hoping someone would give input :)

Not enough data to make a good recommendation. ;)

What size are the drives?
Are you asking if you should raid 0 all four drives? What do you think that would gain you? What controller do you plan on using?

Personally, I'd stick one of the M4 in as theOS drive. Use the other in another 3 systems and spread the joy around.

I have 2 vertex 3's
I also have 2 Crucial M4's

All 4 drives are 120GB (er or 128GB)

I don't know much about "controllers" but I have heard intel is better then Marvel I think it was or something to that degree.... I would use the Intel.

I figured I'd be best to put an SSD in the other 2 machines (for faster OS drives and boot times etc).

Question I guess comes down to would I notice any difference between the M4's vs the Vertex 3's?

I'd really like to sell and get 256 gb drives but need you to have another sale lol!
